A common theme that comes up in wheel-build threads is the importance of a quality wheel builder. The time has come to pimp my ride. So, SF kids, I ask your advice, who builds your wheels? Who's the best?
Old ****ed up Cannondale roadie, peice o **** Gitane as a beater, and I use my Nishiki for bike camping
I build my own now, I'm still learning, so they may not be the best, but you have to start somewhere.
that said, I used to get mine built at American (when I lived in SF). They did a great job, nice tight tension and stayed true over a lot of miles and bumps. I've heard good things about Montano Velo in Oakland too, a lot of people I ride with have wheelbuilds from there, nice work.
