Wheelbuilder Request

I have a SRAM IGH that I would like to have laced to a rim I have. I recall reading about a wheelbuilder located somewhere in Lake Forest/Laguna Hills area. Anyone know this wheelbuilder or any recommendations for a wheelbulder in the Long Beach/Torrance area??

Thanks,
Drew

There is the guy that used to work at Edge or San Canyon Cyclery that started a wheelbuilding business... Check with Hank at Edge...

The Path in Tustin builds great wheels. More of an MTB shop but they know how to build wheels for sure.
