    Bicycle Wheel Warehouse

    http://www.bicyclewheelwarehouse.com/

    Is this site old news? I'm not in the market (Open Pros came in today!), but I like to know what's out there and this site seems to have some interesting offerings, FG and otherwise. RR1.2+Formulas for $240, Open Pro+Formula w/cog&lockring for $205 (I just paid 130 for the same rims, from the LBS the same wheelset would have run $300 easy). All pretty customizable too, as far as what you want to pay for. I thought these (http://www.bicyclewheelwarehouse.com...&productId=164) were especially interesting- they appear to have their own rim supplier, and they make some deep v-esque rims+double butted spokes plus ultegra hubs for 170, which kind of pisses me off as a Deep V+Formula owner. Theirs are lighter. Anyway, just something I noticed...

    late pass. but cool place to get wheels.

    I just found a pair of mavic ma3's with rear laced to a suzue pro max and front laced to a suzue something on cl for $65 and I'm considering closing the deal.



    It's related because they sell Mavic's on this site.

    That seems pretty good to me I'm currently looking at buying cxp22's and this sight offers a wide range of options to customize them with no wheel building fee. I think I know were to get mine now , Thanks. One thing I might add though is that you might want to be carfull as I see they put aluminum lockrings on all there fixed wheels. I would change it if you ride brakeless because Ive stripped one out before and thats not fun at all. go with steel

    The site is old news, but they are reliable and well known on this forum. Bought some wheels from them, still true out of the box over a year later. Some really good deals on there.

    Didn't have quite the same experience. My front went out of true in less than 4 weeks, but my rear is still true. Probably just a lemon, though. I don't use the front one anymore anyways. Otherwise, no real complaints from the company. Good customer service as well.

    Good stuff. I bought my road bike wheels from them. My only gripe is that they didn't totally destress the spokes, so when I rode the for the first time the spokes were popping and pinging. The wheels are still true though

    another option would be http://www.prowheelbuilder.com/. I've only had the wheels for about a month, but they seem to be pretty well built.

    Something along those lines

    I use a wheel with a QR as it makes the bike a little smaller for storage.

    Awesome wheels, only complaint I had was the hub logo didn't line up with the valve hole - yeah, not much to complain about.
