Custom Wheel Building

Notice: 2024 Service Update

Unfortunately, due to other workshop and personal commitments, my time in the workshop is likely to be very limited this year. As a result, I have decided not to offer full bike servicing, bike collection, and LEJoG bike handling in 2024. Wheel building is expected to continue as normal. I may have limited capacity in the workshop at various times for smaller bike repairs - please call.

Custom Wheels - from £40+parts per wheel

Wheels can be new-built or rebuilt with existing components. I can supply new parts from a wide range of suppliers including DT Swiss, Ryde/Rigida, Mavic, Shimano, SRAM, Miche, DCR and Bitex at competitive prices as part of a build. I can also build with customer-supplied parts (subject to review). I generally build with Sapim spokes but can also supply spokes from DT Swiss and ACI on request.

Prices for custom builds start from £40+parts for a wheel built to 20% tension variance with plain gauge or regular double-butted spokes and a standard lacing pattern. Prices increase for narrow gauge spokes, lower tension variance, and non-standard lacing patterns, all of which affect the time taken for a build.

Give me a call to discuss options and pricing for your custom wheel build.

Off-the-Shelf Wheels

Hand-built custom wheels are an excellent choice if you want a specific set of components or some other feature which is unavailable off-the-shelf. However, sometimes an off-the-shelf wheel is a suitable choice, either because it is matched to a groupset or because it offers a suitable combination of quality and price for the application. I can supply pre-built wheels from premium brands such as Campagnolo, Shimano, Mavic as well as budget brands such as M-Part and Tru-Build, at competitive prices.
