Shop: No, we'll build it the best that we can. We can only guarantee that we'll put our best effort,
yada, yada, yada.........
Me again at a different shop: I'm aking to rebuild my wheel because it's breaking spokes, if you build
my wheel; will it have a warranty for popping spokes?
Other shop: No, there's a lot of variables. Do you hop curbs(No), what happens if you hit a pothole,
yada, yada, yada.......
I asked a few different shops here in New York City, and got pretty much the same responses.
So this is when I decided to go with Peter White. He warrantees his work.
