Just wanted to say thanks and I can't believe how great the wheels are that I bought. I purchased a set of Velocity Dyad Rims w/DT Swiss spokes and Shimano XT hubs back in January for my tandem. It's now June and I've officially put over 1,000 miles on them and they are as true as the first day I bought them. I honestly believe they are probably the best wheelset I've ever owned. I say this because I haven't had to do anything to them at all. I just check the tire pressure then get on the bike and go. They are a huge improvement over the stock rims that came with the bike and provide me incredible peace of mind when I'm flying down hills at 40 - 50 mph with my wife seated behind me. By the way she wanted me to add that the wheels make the tandem look sexy (haha). Take care and keep up the great work!! Sid

As a heavyweight rider, I found myself having to true my wheels often, to the point it was getting impossible to get them perfectly true. I even had to replace broken spokes a few times. I started looking for wheels at my local bike shops and the big online stores and was getting totally frustrated. I am so glad I found PWB.
I've had this wheel set (SHIMANO TOURING CLYDESDALE WHEEL SET PACKAGE) for just over two years and could not be happier. They are absolutely bomb proof; I have not had to touch a single spoke. I neglected to save my odometer miles when my computer battery died, but I have easily over 3600 miles on these wheels.
PWB's customer service is unparalleled - they even contacted me via phone and email to clarify some things as my order was being processed. Thank you so much PWB!
