    A few??? Notoriously bad. Am sure I’ve even heard of him having a square go with a few customers. Goods not arriving etc etc. Do a search on here and see what comes up.

    Just try searching for Dave Hinde. Look at the litany 9f vitriol against them. That vitriol is there for a good reason.

    Phew. That could have gone badly wrong. Good decision.

    He’s supposed to be a good wheelbuilder. But he’s definitely a ****. Other good wheelbuilders are available so give your money to one that’s not a ****.

    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.

    Yay or nay?

    I’m sure I remember a few bad reviews on here a while ago, any good as a wheel builder & customer service?

    Cheers

    Try moonglu, built me an ace pair of wheels for my XC bike.

    I hear good things about this Gentleman’s wheel builds: DCR Wheels

    Built a number of wheels for Demon Frameworks if you check out the gallery, and Tom is a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to his bikes 🙂

    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.

    Cheers everyone, certainly a lot to look into, I just need to decide what I want now!!

    P.S watch this space for some Pro 2 Evos on 521’s for sale in the future 😆

    It’s not hard to do it yourself, if you’re already good at truing. Just get Roger Musson’s book.
