Looking for suggestions for a good Road orientated shop in Maricopa County, AZ

Maybe I am missing something but I sure have not found a great bike shop with a great wheel builder in the Valley of the Sun. There was one in the Arrowhead Ranch Section of Glendale but he closed yeafrsago.

Was checking out two that people pointed me to this weekend, and when I asked to speak with their wheel building expert. I get the impression they do not build on site, but order from the same places I can order from.

Ideas.

I've never had any wheels built locally, but @BoSoxYacht might be able to help.

have you tried Swiss-American, or Southwest Bikes? I'd be surprised if they couldn't take care of you.

Did you ever hear from the people building your wheels?

Yep, they came last Friday and put them on Friday night. Everything worked out great!
