My OEM ebike wheel had a hop in it. When I went to my local bike store for a new wheel I gave him a wish list and a price range. I guess I wanted too much for too little and never heard back from him.
I entered my wish list to Pro wheel builder.com and found out I could indeed get what I wanted in budget.
3 weeks later I got a package with a gorgeous custom wheel for me, make with ebike Sapim strong spokes and a rugged DTswiss rim.
Later that afternoon after easily fitting it (my first tubeless tire) I went out to test it. Within a half hour I had achieved two new PRs on the two Strava segments I rode. One by 7 seconds and one by 10. I did a 12 mile trip at an average of 21.3 mph. I would say the wheel works! I don't know if it is the rim geometry, the fact that it is now running tubeless, or the Shimano hub being faster, but I guess I really don't care. The combo works. I would recommend ProWheelbuilder.com to my e-bike buddies, and you guys should probably make an e-bike category for this growing segment.

This was my first time to order a custom wheel set and PWB provided great service. They provided several suggestions for me to consider after considering my weight and type of cycling. I decided on the Boyd 44 carbon clinchers, T-11 hubs and Sapim CX Ray spokes. This great combination provides for a smooth light ride while handling well in moderate to strong Kansas winds. PWB communicated very well throughout the process and then provide on-time delivery. I have recommended that others on my team check out PWB.
