I have no got myself some hand built rims on the way , after 2 months of searching reading talking to stealers/dealers I have found the rims for me
TWE rims , Greg at TWE has been more than forthcomming on info and details on his hand built rims .
He has factored in everything before coming back to me with a rim second to none .
Will post up some pic's when they arrive
Thanx to everyone for their input , I hope Greg can help you all out with your rims .
Just one of many things IMHO.
Having a wife who does not really understand the cycling bug (oh, she makes all the right noises, but I know she thinks I'm a kangaroo short in the top paddock for riding distances she won't drive) can make life hard when you're trying to explain that a HRM is a MANDATORY piece of equipment for riding. And one set of wheels/tyres is never enough, let alone one bike (let's see, I need a roadie, MTB for fun in the mud, a commuter/trainer so I don't wear the roadie out, at least two sets of tyres for each, and possibly more for the roadie, plus additional wheels).
Gosh, no wonder she thinks I'm nuts.
Hmmm...I'm a wife...and my husband and I have 3 bikes each...and mine cost more...and I have more gear...and I ride more kms...hmmm...can we all agree that SOME PARTNERS just don't understand Please no generalising
yeah i will go with that , my sister has $$$$$$ worth of moto cross gear and her hubby is happy with a new X-BOX ... go figure
bikes might just be like handbags to Moo
When he divorces you, don't forget that some of us ancient 'unmarriagables' understand your carbon fetish
Why does he offer prices only on asking? Is this because of the variables associated with custom wheels? Higher pricing on bladed spokes or a different rim etc? It would be nice to know an approximate figure, to gauge what the prices are comparable to across manufacturers like Mavic, Shimano or Fulcrum.
The idea of a custom set of wheels certainly interests me, but for browsing i just wish the info was a bit more accessible.
Without doubt there is a simple and reasonable explanation for this, which is why i query
I'm guessing he takes hub "B", lacing it to rim "F" with spokes "A" to suit you. Anybody else gets some other combo and therefore a different price
Never thought much about custom wheels before, always bought off the shelf, 'spose it's more a roadie thing...
