Wheel Building

Along with over 30 years for frame building experience, we have built a fair few wheels along the way too. Some have been ridden around the world (literally), some raced, a lot used on tandems and heavy duty touring bikes and one pair used for the Paris-Roubaix sportive and are still running round and true on Rob's favourite fixie.

So you choose your ideal combination of hubs, spokes and rims or call us and we can of course offer guidance and advice, and we'll build you a fantastic pair of hand-built wheels – or one if you just need one.

We can offer the following, although not exhaustive list of wheel parts:

Hubs: Hope, Royce UK, Shimano, Campagnolo, Miche, Ambrosio, DT-Swiss, Phil Wood, Dia Compe, Halo and for tandems: Middleburn, Synergy Royce UK, Phil Wood, Shimano and DT.
Rims: Mavic, Ambrosio, DT-Swiss, Synergy, Halo, Velocity, Alex and Ghisallo Wooden Rims.
Spokes: DTSwiss or Sapim.

If you have some classic or vintage components to build into wheels do contact to see how we can help you.

The cost for building is £25 per wheel
UK P&P from £12 per pair
Europe and worldwide P&P – please contact us and we'll happily give an individual quote.
