Back in the day, his wheels were good. I’ve got 15 yr old MTV wheels and cx wheels that have lasted 3 three peaks and lots of other abuse.
The pair I got on a SH bike last year are shoddy and I’m thinking of giving up and getting the rear rebuilt.
Built me a pair of hope pro 2 on flow 29er wheels, great wheels no problems once they turned up.
Getting them to turn up though was a fair amount of hassle.
In the post with you tmrw!!! Well after nearly 2 weeks of that they did eventually make it, he was very sorry about it,
Great wheels but a sod to get them delivered.
I got a set of his about two years ago when he was trading as Fastpartsforbikes. They looked great, were a decent price and turned up on time, but I had to have them virtually rebuilt as the spoke tensions were all over the place. Having learnt the truth about Hinde from various sources I didn’t bother testing his customer service.
These days I heartily recommend cycle-fast.co.uk. Another Dave, but a completely different experience. Awesome wheels, custom spec, and a free truing service for life.
Mine have been good, always a nice wheel and a very quick turn around.
I’ve only ever had custom road wheels though.
IIRC he has always been around, and AFAIK he has a good shop and is a big supporter of the local scene, despite that you can’t ignore the stuff on the net.
