I wanted to wait to review my wheels (Kinlin XR270 front, XR300 rear laced to Miche Hubs) til I had put some miles on them, and after about 4 months and 700 miles later, I love these wheels. I wanted to upgrade the stock wheels on my track/ commuter bike and chose PWB because you can get exactly what you want and they beat anything you can get off the shelf. Plus no one else will have a set like you. They took a little longer that expected because of some out of stock parts, but as soon as that was sorted (with a little upgrade, no charge) I received my wheels and have been flying on them ever since. I am completely satisfied with the product, service, and experience. My next wheel set will be from PWB. Thanks!

After some very helpful consultation, I ordered H Plus Son Archetypes with White Industry Hubs in with 24/2x and 28/3x lacing of sapim spokes. This is the third wheelset I have had on my Carrera Nitro. The first, Campy Scirocco's, were smooth but the G3 lacing lacked durability, and I blew many spokes. Switched for Reynolds Solitude, which were noisy and also blew spokes. After riding the H Pus Son wheels about 1200 miles, I am confident that these wheels are the best investment I have made on my bike. They are solid, smooth, quiet, and fast. Although I hate the cliche, these wheels have made a huge difference in my cornering, descending, and overall happiness on my bike. I don't race and I am not a tech wheenie--I just ride to be outside and under my own power. I am 5'11'', ride between 200 and 215. This build is bombproof.
