    Online Wheel Builders

    I am trying to build up some wheels, any suggestions as to where I could do it for a good price/quality online? Preferably someplace with a lot of selection, thanks.

    Do you have any LBS nearby? Most shops have somebody who can competently build a wheelset using any hub/spoke/nipple/rim of your choice. And talking it over with the person who is going to build your wheels is a good feeling, especially if they will re-true the wheels after a break-in period.

    Agree with that. I ordered a hub_rim_spoke combo from LBS. He built the wheel. I went to pick it up and he had gotten the wrong rim. No problem. He got the one I wanted and re built it. I like the fact that I can walk in and get it tweaked if need be even if the price was a little bit more than online. Plus he will install parts for me for free cuz I don't have all the bike tools that exist.

    Get your local shop to do it or do it yourself.
