Good wheel builder in Minneapolis area

Madison Wisconsin isn't that far, so contact Yellow Jersey for a solid dose of good wheel karma.

Best bet would be to mail the hubs and pick up the finished wheels. But being that close, I doubt that the postage or UPS charges for a built pair would be very much.

Autocorrect has made your message incomprehensible (to me). Maybe others can understand it?

I've had the best luck with Calhoun Cycles (I think it's called Perennial Cycle now).

They're actual bike selection is quirky/folder bikes, but I drive halfway across town to get tuneups done there as they've always done a good job.
