- Recommend me a custom wheel builder in the NE.
What you want is a fairly standard build so will be available online. In that case have a look at Merlin and Justridingalong I’ve had wheel builds by them and they have all been very good.
If you are in Newcastle then talk to M Steels. Dave did a wheelbuilding introduction for our club and he knows his stuff. A few guys have had them build wheels and have been happy with the results. I’ll certainly be calling in to talk about aby future builds and repairs.Posted 5 years agoir_banditoSubscriber
I’ve got a wheel built by Dave at Steels at least 15 years ago which is still going strong.
Get a jig, a copy of Sheldon Brown’s guide of his website and DIY. I’ve done loads now.
My most recent wheels:
Velocity A23s on Novatech 711 rear and SP PD-8 front with black AC spokes and nipples. straight as a die and totally round 🙂Posted 5 years agokevjMember
Cheers for the replies. I’ll look a Merlin and see what options are available.
Ir, I would love to give building my own a go. I have built up a truing jig with a dial test indicator for fixing buckles. It is just that I wouldn’t have faith in my first build for me to relax and enjoy them.Posted 5 years ago
