    I’ve never had a problem with a wheel from Bicycleworks on Argyle Place (well, not one that has been anyone’s other than my own fault!).


    Try Andy at Eastside bikes.
    If you are planning on crossing a continent or two my advice (from someone who has) would be to learn how to do it yourself.

    Not quite Edinburgh but Steve at Icycles has always done a lovely job of mine. Fast turnaround too.


    I’m in need of a touring wheelset for some forthcoming adventures put together in Edinburgh. There’s a couple of threads from a few years back but I’m after some up to date advice on who can build me a 700c disc wheel to cross a continent or two. (Criticism from traditionalists on wheelsize/brake type accepted)


    Jake Law at Alpine Bikes, Glentress,
    builds my wheels and have never had an issue,
    oh and i couldnt care about the shop, cafe, and all the bitching about the place. blah blah blah…
    i will go to him for wheel builds what ever shop employs him 🙂

    Having read the book by Mark Beaumont about cycling aroung the world – (and me never having done it) – his recommendation is: not somewhere in Scotland – but … you should read the book. What we think works brill on our roads is crap in kerdicantrememberthenameofthiscountryi-Stan.


    Don’t get me started on Mark Beaumont

    drop me an email at handcraftedwheels@gmail and i can help you out with anything you need to know and help you with any wheel ideas you might have 😀

    Happy trails Dan


    CWSA a good wheel is a good wheel-choice of constituent parts is another matter.

    druidh- as I said – I havent done it. Honestly If I was crazy /fit enough to do this I would call in and see you guys.

    But reading his book (he obviously should have gone to see you;) IMO read the book. Any idiot can have a wheel failure. Any idiot will run out of carbs. Etc etc. What hub gets fixed in dodgystan is a different matter.
