There's nothing special about the powertap that requires a wheelbuilder to be familiar with one. Anyone can re-rim/re-lace it if that is what you're looking for. If it's the actual hub that is a problem that's not a wheelbuilder you need to look for.

C'mon, don't make me go there. Do you know a wheelbuilder in SF Bay area? My plumber can't rebuild it. So anyone can't. If my PT wheel has wheel lacing requirements as per Saris then I guess you're wrong again. Step off!

Step off?

Can't believe I actually waste time helping ungrateful people like you. The only lacing requirement is they recommend 3x for a powertap. Any other genius knowledge you want to impart on me?

Do us a favour and rid us of your attitude and your presence. You don't deserve any of the help of this forum.
