Here is my updated testimonial. I now have a little over 1300 miles on my nearly five month old PWB wheels. Riding mostly on paved roads in Iowa (about 10% gravel), the wheels still look great and roll true. I could not be more happy with these wheels. For me, Pro Wheel Builder wheels are not only reliable wheels, but works of art.
The product, the packaging, the customer service, the attention to detail; all shout out, "We care about what we do!" Cheers, to Pro Wheel Builder.

I can't say enough good things about PWB. My road bike gets daily abuse on a long, hilly commute over bad roads and gravel trails. I was looking for something that was light enough to climb well, tough enough for gravel, and precise enough to handle long descents through mountain switchbacks. The ride has chewed up two stock Bontrager wheelsets and even a set of Mavics. Local wheelbuilders weren't able to quote me anything they thought would work for less than a grand.
I considered a wide range of rims, hubs, and wheelbuilders before Debra at PWB suggested I take a look at the Ventus Premium wheelset. Watching a YouTube video of them bombing down trails gave me confidence that they might fit the bill. I'm glad I took her advice. They are light, responsive, and hold true even after a few months on gravel, and the custom red hubs look really sharp to boot.
