I am very pleased with my custom PWB wheels. I ride mostly on pavement, with an occasional gravel and level B maintance road. The Kinlin xr31 rims, T-11 hubs and Sapim spokes work well together. Thirty-two in front and Thirty-six in rear. They are set up for tubless and no problems. I ordered them for hard use because we have a lot of rumble strips in Iowa. Sometimes they cannot be avoided and the real bad ones take a toll on wheels. After a couple months riding my PWB wheels are still perfectly true. These wheels exceed my expectations. They look cool, they roll fast, and they seem bomb proof. I recommend PWB for high quality wheels, and friendly helpful sales people. Ron Roberts

I'm Michael, a Cat 1 out of Vegas. I had bought a set of stock Zipp 404 wheels that I thought would do just fine for crit racing and training. A buddy of mine had the same rims, but one of the pawls in his rear hub broke and the gear would not engage, cauzing it to slip during an important race, which took him out of the running due to his hub mechanical. Nothing against Zipp hubs, but When Rich, the owner of Pro Wheelbuilder.com, showed me the inside of a Zipp hub compared to a White Industry hub, I was shocked!. I immediately had Rich build me a wheel from scratch using the Zipp rim, White industry hub, flat black spokes, and replaced the old rim tape with nipple plugs. I did all of this for the around the same price as buying the stock wheels, and let me tell you the wheel is ten times better than it was coming out of the box from Zipp. It's like a Zipp wheels on steroids!. I use em to climb, crit, train....anything and everything. I love em!. Trust me, Rich will guide you through the whole process in building a wheel that is perfect for all of your needs. He did it for me. Thanks Rich! Michael .....AkA...."Chicky"
