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.

PWB built a set of Nox Kitsuma wheelset laced with i9 Hydra hubs for me. First of, I'm very impressed with the shipping boxes that the wheels came in. They were very well packed and PWB also sent extra spokes and nipples and an information card about the wheels. PWB's customer service is also very excellent. They will answer any questions/concerns right away. My only regret is that I did not have them built my other wheelset (I did not know them before). I highly recommend PWB to anyone looking for a high quality set of wheels at a very reasonable price.
