Just wanted to say thanks and I can't believe how great the wheels are that I bought. I purchased a set of Velocity Dyad Rims w/DT Swiss spokes and Shimano XT hubs back in January for my tandem. It's now June and I've officially put over 1,000 miles on them and they are as true as the first day I bought them. I honestly believe they are probably the best wheelset I've ever owned. I say this because I haven't had to do anything to them at all. I just check the tire pressure then get on the bike and go. They are a huge improvement over the stock rims that came with the bike and provide me incredible peace of mind when I'm flying down hills at 40 - 50 mph with my wife seated behind me. By the way she wanted me to add that the wheels make the tandem look sexy (haha). Take care and keep up the great work!! Sid

I was going to buy a set of wheels from thebikebiz.com. White Phil hubs to white Deep Vs. Here's a quote from the email they sent me: "Wheel price would be $675 USD, and shipping will be approximately $200 USD". So... $875. Yesterday I received a pair of the exact same wheels from Richard at prowheelbuilder.com. Total cost including shipping: $594.70. That's almost $300 difference for the exact same item. I ordered them Sept 6 and received them September 18, so less than two weeks later. I only had to pay $31 in taxes and no customs. The wheels are fantastic and the price was great. Thanks Richard!
