I was going to buy a set of wheels from thebikebiz.com. White Phil hubs to white Deep Vs. Here's a quote from the email they sent me: "Wheel price would be $675 USD, and shipping will be approximately $200 USD". So... $875. Yesterday I received a pair of the exact same wheels from Richard at prowheelbuilder.com. Total cost including shipping: $594.70. That's almost $300 difference for the exact same item. I ordered them Sept 6 and received them September 18, so less than two weeks later. I only had to pay $31 in taxes and no customs. The wheels are fantastic and the price was great. Thanks Richard!

These guys are the best at what they do; build rock solid wheels. They helped me last year with my damaged FSA rim that didn't make it though a race. They laced up a Mavic to my old hub while I waited so I could be quickly up and running again. That rear wheel is still running true. I've since ordered one of their custom wheels with Stan's Arch hoop laced to a White Industries hub that just finished it's first race in the Hammerhead 100. This wheel is awesome, feels much stiffer and solid compared to the old FSA. The wheel arrived on time and in great shape, they have good attention to detail. I know what kind of quality product I'm getting with Pro Wheel Builder and have no need to look any further. Thanks again guys!
