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.

To the good folks at PWB, I placed an order with you guys on May 4, 2012. I requested Black MSW Velocity Dyad rims with White Industries Hubs, & DT Swiss spokes & nipples. You guys exceeded my expectations to say the least!!! My wheels arrived days earlier than expected and the wheels are super true. There was no need to true them even after the rough haul all the way to Alaska. Oh, and of course they look awesome!! Thank you so much for your promptness and good service!!
