Wheel builder?

Wheel builder?

Postby Crawf » Sat Jul 09, 2011 5:37 pm

Looking for a decent builder to build up a carbon wheel-set and another rear wheel all with parts supplied.
Any suggestions in Brissie?

Cheers

Troy at River City Cycles. If I recall correctly, he is the only mechanic from Australia that regularly attends the annual Park Tool conference in the US of A. A more professional and thorough mechanic would be hard to find.

Went with Fusion Cycles in the end - really nice guys and good service. Was a welcome change not getting attitude from some sales punk as soon as you want something out of the ordinary done!

chain gang at seventeen mile rocks are still aware that customers are not 'costomers'.
went in looking for some bidon cage bolts. walked out with said bolts, plus cables and bar tape, and now i'm recommending them!
previous lbs sales punk asked what bike they were for (perhaps i should have said "fixie" instead of "old repco roadie") and said "nuh, don't have any" and went back to reading his magazine

That's the most correct post on this site ever.
