    Chi-town Locals!!!!

    Hey guys I'm trying to find a reliable shop/ wheelbuilder to lace up a wheel of mine. I want this baby to be solid!

    Any suggestions would be great!

    Learn to do it yourself and you'll feel rewarded by it.

    But if not, Best way to find a shop is to open up your local phone book, go to the yellow pages, and look under bicycles There should be a lot of shops that you can call and ask.


    What wheel are you planning to build?

    Wheel building is different. I have 10 shops in town but only one has what I would call a capable builder. I doubt this is the best forum to ask as I don't know tooo many chi town freeriders (the ones I did know moved out west) but using the yellow pages to find a wheel builder could get you stuck with a crap builder.
