I received my front Velocity Dyad rim with Shimano 105 hub a couple of
days ago. It made my day to come home and find my new wheel waiting
for me. I headed straight to the garage to make the change. First, I
checked the spoke tension with the old squeeze test. It seemed
uniformly tight. Nice. Next, I put the wheel on the fork without a
tire and gave her a spin. Wow, that's really, really true and minimal
vertical hop too! The only thing left to do was install the tape and
tire. I've put 15 miles of rough city roads on the wheel so far, and
it's as true as it was out of the box. I wholeheartedly believe this
wheel will out live my bike. Thanks guys!
--Update-- I'm as happy now as I was a month ago. The wheel has
over 600 miles on it now, and it's as good now as it was then. Todd

I had been in the market for wheels and a friend put me on to Pro Wheelbuilder, and after many combinations and deliberations I settled on a great build perfectly suited to my needs.
What really set the purchase apart was not the ease of constructing the build, or the wide range of available product, but the service from the whole PWB crew, namely Debra.
I had what I’m sure was a headache inducing request for my payment options, but like a true rockstar Debra stuck with me and got everything sorted super-satisfactorily. She was communicative throughout and gave what I view as FRIEND-LIKE service (which to me is a cut above “friendly” service).
It was a real treat, and gave me great faith in the entire operation, which is crucial when doing a bespoke, high-dollar internet transaction. If you’re considering a wheel build I strongly, strongly recommend giving PWB your business!
