I wanted to wait to review my wheels (Kinlin XR270 front, XR300 rear laced to Miche Hubs) til I had put some miles on them, and after about 4 months and 700 miles later, I love these wheels. I wanted to upgrade the stock wheels on my track/ commuter bike and chose PWB because you can get exactly what you want and they beat anything you can get off the shelf. Plus no one else will have a set like you. They took a little longer that expected because of some out of stock parts, but as soon as that was sorted (with a little upgrade, no charge) I received my wheels and have been flying on them ever since. I am completely satisfied with the product, service, and experience. My next wheel set will be from PWB. Thanks!

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.
