Now the problem starts for the rest of us. What hubs/spokes/ rims are you going to use and what style of riding, on what bike and how aggressive. [/QUOTE]
This shall be my 5th wheelset build. The new wheels will be constructed by using 32 double butted
(14-15-14) Sapim spokes to lace Velocity Fusion rims to Ultegra hubs in 3 cross pattern. The wheels shall be mounted on my Specialized Allez Comp Triple for recreational cycling on relatively smooth paved roads/paths within the flat Oklahoma City area topography. I am 61 years old and recovering from recent (October 06) triple bypass (CABG x 3) surgery, so remaining upright will be "aggresive"..
Gary, I understand that you're peeved but what if the wheelbuilder has just had the flu for the last couple of weeks like the rest of the country? My local shop guy might take a month or more to build me a custom set of wheels. So why should your guy be any different?
I've found that given enough patience most people come through for you. I probably wouldn't go to them again because of the communications issues but still would expect my wheels.
