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

As a heavyweight rider, I found myself having to true my wheels often, to the point it was getting impossible to get them perfectly true. I even had to replace broken spokes a few times. I started looking for wheels at my local bike shops and the big online stores and was getting totally frustrated. I am so glad I found PWB.
I've had this wheel set (SHIMANO TOURING CLYDESDALE WHEEL SET PACKAGE) for just over two years and could not be happier. They are absolutely bomb proof; I have not had to touch a single spoke. I neglected to save my odometer miles when my computer battery died, but I have easily over 3600 miles on these wheels.
PWB's customer service is unparalleled - they even contacted me via phone and email to clarify some things as my order was being processed. Thank you so much PWB!
