Brissie wheel builder recommendations

Postby clarinetcola » Thu Nov 18, 2010 1:15 am

Any?
Done a pretty comprehensive search on the forum, but both threads didn't help much.

I'm ordering in a Sturey Archer S2 hub for commuting, and I'll need somebody to build it up for me. As much as I'd like to do it myself I don't have much free time and if I did I'd prefer to sit down and have a cup of tea or something at this stage. You guys have any good recommendations of shops or wheel builders near CBD or southside? I had my bike serviced at riders mt gravatt once, never going back again!

Cheers!

Talk to the guys at Fortheriders at Annerley. They had a gun wheel builder a while back. He built my xt hubs and Mavic open pro's for my 29er. 3 years on, they are still great.

Darrell at Llewelyn Bikes (www.llewellynbikes.com) has a good reputation. I don't have experience with others to compare against admittedly, but I've found Darrell to be a nice guy and very willing to give advice when I've spoken to him.

I don't visit the south side often, but I can recommend Ashley at HGR at Alderly or Paul at Ridgeways Cycles Stafford. Both excelent & on top of the game when it comes to wheel building.
