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 needed to replace 1 broken Sapim CX-Ray spoke. I couldn’t find anyone that had them in stock. One bike shop told me they could order them, but I’d have to buy 20 @ ~$65. I found Pro Wheel Builder in Cumming, GA. They had my spoke in stock and could cut whatever length I needed. I drove a long way to them to get my spoke. I was so happy to have my new spoke. I got 3 sizes cut so I was covered and had the correct size. Need some wheels, check out this place. They have all sorts choices – Mavic, HED, American Classic, custom, and more!
