    I have been looking for a trusted wheel builder in Portland, OR. Any hints?

    I have a thread on this somewhere farther down on in this board/page. Anyway, the collective advice was Sellwood Cycle Repair and I've been happy with the results so far (though I'll admit I've put very few miles on the new wheel). Lifetime truing is what really sold me. Veloce was mentioned. I was also considering South Salem Cycleworks (but I live pretty far south already). They build up a ton of wheels down there.
