Wheel Builds

Ask us about a custom-built dynamo hub or an extra sturdy tandem wheel and we’ll be happy to build it. Build prices vary, and start at $65 + parts, per wheel.

We use the latest Park Tool TS-4 Professional Truing Stand which accommodates quick release or thru-axle hubs, wheel sizes from 16″ to 29″ and a tire width up to 5.” We can also true your disc brake rotor with the Park Tool DT-3 Rotor Truing Gauge attachment.

We also offer a Wheel Building 101 class to walk you through the art of wheel building and guide you towards building your own custom wheel.
