The art of wheel building
Wheels are the most significant upgrade that you can make to a bicycle. Of all the components on a bicycle, they make the biggest difference in the way the bicycle handles and rides. Factors like the moment of inertia, weight, flex and gyroscopic forces all play a major role in making you go faster.
I build every one of my wheels with the utmost attention to detail and quality incorporating the skills and secrets that I have developed as a professional wheel builder over the last 10 years. You have my assurance that any wheelset built by me will make a formidable difference to your cycling experience.
I only use the best materials in my wheels to ensure you will have the stiffest, lightest wheelset possible.
