    Bicycle Wheel Warehouse?? (Pure wheels)

    I'm curious, anyone had any dealings with bicycle wheel warehouse? It's time to replace the wheels on my commuter, but am on a budget. I've been looking at their pure tour full custom wheels, (w/105 hubs) but am unsure of the quality of the rim, and the build quality of the wheel. I like that they are deep v 30mm, and have more than 24 spokes. Other than the questions of quality and build, they sounds like good fit. If anyone has good or bad things to say, I'd love to hear it.

    Good value for the money

    I've ordered twice from BWW and both times the wheel sets were nicely tensioned and straight.
    I usually build my own wheels from scratch but BWW prices are hard to beat. I can't build my wheels cheaper than theirs. I usually throw the new wheels onto my truing stand when they arrive. Both times the wheels were nice and straight. The people taking the orders are very knowledgeable about their products and are easy to deal with. The wheel sets usually come with the skewers as well. The wheels I purchased have been holding up well. Both my wheel sets are Mavic Open Sports with standard DT Swiss 2.0 spokes, DT Swiss brass nipples and 105 hubs in silver.
    The only difference between my wheel sets is that one set uses silver Mavic hoops and the other set uses the black Mavic hoops. I personally like the black finish as it is usually easier to keep clean.
    I was originally recommended to try BWH from a friend who like you is on a budget. I would order from them again.

    I purchased a set of Mavic Open Pro CD wheels with Ultegra 6600 hubs and they have been great. I have about 500 miles on them and they are still straight as an arrow. Great place to buy a wheel set.

    Only have one set from them, but they have held up well and appear to be well built. I would buy from them again.
    Don't take life too seriously, you won't get out alive anyway.

    Bought two set, they were cheaper built up and shipped compared to me buying the parts and building them myself.

    I was impressed by the fact that they shipped my wheels in in two special wheel boxes for only $25. They even included rim tapes.
