Taking your wheels to the shop for truing way to often ?
A professional hand built wheel will resolve these problems for you.
The Wheel Needs:
to be put in a truing stand and be < .5mm. (not just looking between brake pads)
the spoke tension measured (not just by feel)
dished(centering the rim to hub)
tensioned balanced (getting all the spokes within +/- 10 Kgf)
MEASURING SPOKE TENSION: I rarely get a wheel into my shop for truing and or a broken spoke that had the spoke tension set correctly. Every wheel that comes in for repair and every new build has the spoke tension set to the max of the rim manufacturers" recommendations. This makes for a wheel that "STANDS", a wheel that is both very reliable and will perform better, instantly responding to the cyclist.
Whether you just need your wheel repaired or require a new wheel, give us a call. Our work is guaranteed. If I choose the materials based on the riders weight and intended use of the wheels, they will be guaranteed for life. You should never brake a spoke or need them trued.
