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.

I ordered a set of stans grails on hope pro Evo 2 hubs a little before xmas. They quoted me 3 weeks which was fair. 2 weeks after ordering they showed up and man. were they awesome. I've put on around 200 miles on dirt roads/ and single track with my straggler in the last few weeks and they've performed flawlessly. The guys here helped me place my order and emailed me keeping me up to speed on my wheels progress. Top notch service and top not wheels
