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.

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.
