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 some Pacenti SL23 built by PWB a few months ago. Before this, I have never had a custom built wheel. I have had many aluminum prebuilt wheels before (Mavic SL, Dura Ace, Zipp). These wheels far exceed any that I have ridden before in speed, comfort, handling and braking at a much lower cost. The service from PWB was also perfect...great advice on the build... Pacenti SL23, White Industry T11, Sapim CX Ray (front) Race (rear). I love these wheels!
