- Just Ride Along – Custom Wheel build quality
Any one know what the custom wheel build quality from Just Ride Along is like?
Thinking of getting a new wheel set:
Stans Arch EX rim with Shimano XT hubs and Sapim D-light spokes.
But don’t know what the shop is like? I’ve know the name for a while but no idea if they are good or bad.
thanks. JaiPosted 4 years agodavebMember
I have had a total of six wheelsets from them over the last three or four years. Two were in the last few weeks so cant comment yet but previously they have always been built to a very high standard, customer service and advice has been top notch and I would happily buy from them again.
Previous to them I bought from Merlin but after two wheelsets I wasnt quite so happy with havent bought again, happy to pay the bit extra that JRA charge for the better servicePosted 4 years agoStevo210Member
Had direct contact….had 2 sets built and currently have a wheel being serviced.
Really helpful, on the phone, email and in person. Both sets of wheels are still running beautifully and true (both built to my riding style, weight etc after extensive advice and recommendation).
Would definitely recommend. When needed I’ll be looking at a third set for my road bike from JRA.
There’s probably not a lot they don’t know, they are wheel specialists and that’s just what they deal with, day in and day out. 🙂Posted 4 years agojairajSubscriber
So in summary yes they are great! 🙂 Good to hear, thanks all for the comments.
Been looking at builds from JRA, Merlin and Superstar. All are pretty much the same with Merlin about £15 less per wheel.
All know how to build wheels well and get good comments but seems as if JRA is a slightly ahead.Posted 4 years agomattythemodMember
Just had a set of JRA wheels delivered , Dt Swiss 240 Road Hubs on Pacenti SL23 rims built with Sapim Race spokes ..inital quality of build looks top notch and the service all the way through has been good , will be riding them later today have to say i have no dramas in reccomemnding them to anyone else !Posted 4 years agojamesoSubscriber
Very good ime – 29″ P35s on Hope/Paul hubs that have had a beating on a rigid bike and done some loaded-up trips. Build tension and lack of wobbles after a 6 month period easily as good as the other set (identical spec) built by a well-regarded builder I know. Good vfm and delivery etc.Posted 4 years agodoom_mountainSubscriber
Got some Hope / Stans built which have been faultless.
Went back to them for wheels for my tourer, went with Ambrosio / Velocity A23 combo. The rims they had didn’t have matching stickers, I got a phone call asking if this was ok. In the end, they steamed the stickers off, fantastic customer service.
It’s a shame I don’t buy wheels very often, I’d happily give them more business 😀Posted 4 years ago
