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.

I can't say enough good things about PWB. My road bike gets daily abuse on a long, hilly commute over bad roads and gravel trails. I was looking for something that was light enough to climb well, tough enough for gravel, and precise enough to handle long descents through mountain switchbacks. The ride has chewed up two stock Bontrager wheelsets and even a set of Mavics. Local wheelbuilders weren't able to quote me anything they thought would work for less than a grand.
I considered a wide range of rims, hubs, and wheelbuilders before Debra at PWB suggested I take a look at the Ventus Premium wheelset. Watching a YouTube video of them bombing down trails gave me confidence that they might fit the bill. I'm glad I took her advice. They are light, responsive, and hold true even after a few months on gravel, and the custom red hubs look really sharp to boot.
