I was going to buy a set of wheels from thebikebiz.com. White Phil hubs to white Deep Vs. Here's a quote from the email they sent me: "Wheel price would be $675 USD, and shipping will be approximately $200 USD". So... $875. Yesterday I received a pair of the exact same wheels from Richard at prowheelbuilder.com. Total cost including shipping: $594.70. That's almost $300 difference for the exact same item. I ordered them Sept 6 and received them September 18, so less than two weeks later. I only had to pay $31 in taxes and no customs. The wheels are fantastic and the price was great. Thanks Richard!

Here is my updated testimonial. I now have a little over 1300 miles on my nearly five month old PWB wheels. Riding mostly on paved roads in Iowa (about 10% gravel), the wheels still look great and roll true. I could not be more happy with these wheels. For me, Pro Wheel Builder wheels are not only reliable wheels, but works of art.
The product, the packaging, the customer service, the attention to detail; all shout out, "We care about what we do!" Cheers, to Pro Wheel Builder.
