Looking for Wheelbuilder in NYC (that will let me keep my arms and legs)
Ok, so I bought a couple of Deep V rims and a couple of 105 hubs. I'm looking for someone who can build these up strong for me (and supply spokes). I've been calling around and I'm getting quotes of $150 for the whole job (most reasonable)
I know myself and I currently do NOT have the patience/time/skill/know-how to build these myself. Can anyone recommend a wheelbuilder who can make these @ a slightly more affordable price.
Notes: They're both 32h, I'm 230lbs, I commute 20 miles daily, my old 700c's came to an unexpected demise, I'm currently commuting on my old beater 30lbs mtb (which, though a great challenge, is killing me slowly, lol)
I posted here instead of on the "Regional:Northeast" thread because I figured a wheelbuilder in Wherever, USA may know a guy who knows a guy in NYC.
Thanks in advance.
