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!

I recently received my first wheelset (road, Niobiums, with White Hubs) from Richard at ProWheelBuilder.com. Richard went above and beyond the call of duty explaining the differences in lacing patterns, hubs, rim styles and the reasons to go with one or the other depending on application. I received my wheels within the timeframe I was given and they were built exactly to the specs stated. I could not be happier with my first purchase from Richard and staff. Prowheelbuilder will be building my Powertap set up ASAP!!! Thanks for the professional service and awesome product.
