I have some on order so I can't say from personal experience yet.
But, I will tell you why I ordered from him after nearly a month of research and talking with many different "wheel builders", not in any order below:
1) He is a stand up guy. First, he races and is a competitor. Does that mean someone who isn't a Cat 1/2 can't build a good wheel? No, but he rides the wheel himself, and successfully. He isn't afraid to go 40mph on the same wheel he sells you. Furthermore, his fast friendly and honest replies to emails and such have been nothing short of excellent. I haven't been able to find anybody who has one bad thing to say about him and his operation and what they are doing.
2) His rims are from Taiwan. He isn't afraid to tell you that either. A few wheelbuilders around here know the exact source and use the same factories. No mysteries here. Boyd's rims are coming from well known quality sources who make stuff for other major brands.
Some people have claimed on here he uses Chinese made rims like Gigantex or other Chinese sources etc...that is nonsense. He tested and tried Chinese wheels, but has found they require way too much work to get them ready, the quality just isn't there and a pain to work with. He doesn't need a bunch of crap rims coming back from customers to save $15-20 per rim and PR
problems. He knows you don't run a business by using cheap products to make a few extra bucks. So he doesn't use them. He uses only a quality factory proven hoop.
3) Hubs are from Bitex (Taiwanese). If you have heard of Bitex, then you know, they are not chumps and are a big company. The Front is 78gm and 211gm on the rear. These are the newest hubs he just switched to and is testing from Bitex. He will tell you this if you ask him details and specifics by the way, he told me when I asked for the info. A high quality Japanese bearing is used I would assume, like pretty much every other quality wheel brand out there.
4) Sapim CX Ray bladed spokes. I don't think we need to go into the quality of these spokes and why they are used. Nothing to contend with regarding these.
Put all of the above together, and you have something I found hard to find and get answers on from many "wheel builders" out there for the money.
He is straight forward, has probably one of the best combinations of parts used at that price point. Bang for the buck, you can't go wrong IMO. Hence, I bought some.
Are they as fast and well developed as Zipp? No, but a lot of the technology Taiwanese factories are putting into their products are trickle down from well known brands.
The latest wight numbers he gave me, the set is at 1270gms. Sounds like a win-win to me for the $810 with swisstop brake pads.
