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!

Once I placed my order, I received a phone call, the very next morning. About a small error, which was easily solved. This kind of follow through, shows the highest form of professionalism. I was told, that my purchase was already being collected. I then patiently waited, like a child for Christmas Morning, for my Wheel to arrive. Upon arrival, I opened the oddly shaped box, to Unveil, what I shall say is one of the finest pieces of Craftsmanship I have seen in Years. So, Special Thanks to Preston, who laced my wheel, and to Richard who masterfully Trued and Shipped my Wheel. AWESOME Job Fellas !!! here is a Pic. of it mounted on my Bike.
