Wheel Building in ACT

Wheel Building in ACT

Postby DaNmAn » Thu Jul 02, 2009 7:20 pm

Hey guys, I run 32 spoke DA16's laced to an 8 speed alfine hub.
I keep popping spokes so.... I wanted to lace something a bit stronger up to the alfine hub.

HAs nyone got any experience with wheel builders in canberra.

I would like to do it locally to minimise downtime... So over to you guys... Know anyone good, anyone I should avoid ?

Cheers in advance :)

Experience? Yes - all bad. Based on rep, I'd try Lonsdale or Ian Downing.
I ride, therefore I am.

Ian Downing rebuilt a set of wheels for me which had few problems (stemming mostly from the original build in Bris Vegas I think, but badly exacerbated by a Canberra LBS). He did an excellent job and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him for wheels.
