Have been riding my wheels (H Son Archetype rims; White Industries hubs and double butted Sapim spokes) long enough now to review them. They're fantastic, were perfectly true out of the box and have not needed any tuning or maintenance yet. Not a wobble front or rear after 800 or so miles, much of it on rough pavement. Service from Prowheelbuilder was terrific. Richard spent a lot of time with me on the phone explaining and reexplaining the differences between butted and bladed spokes and other points and making recommendations. The pricing was also very competitive and fair. Wheels came shipped in simple but smartly designed cardboard boxes without damage or hassle. All in all, am very happy with the wheels, and concerns I had about buying custom wheels from a company located on the other side of the country proved to be a non-issue.

I recently received my first wheel set (MTB Stan's No Tubes FLOW EX, hope hubs, DT Swiss, Spokes 4 Cross Lacing) from Preston at ProWheelBuilder.com. Preston 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 faster than the time frame I was given and they were built exactly to the specs stated. I could not be happier with my first purchase from Preston and staff. Thanks for the professional service and awesome product. YOU GUYS ROCK!! Keep up the great work and customer service.
