Where do you buy parts for custom made wheels? Or where can I find custom made wheels for folders? I know there are a lot of those in asia, but looks like there isn't much in the US?

What are you looking for?

. You, in the midwest might check with Calhoun in MN..

. Bike Friday in Oregon sells the parts they use to build their bikes.

. you may find your LBS has parts they can get, but wont stock until ordered by someone..

. SJS in UK has every small part for Brompton's .. rims hubs spokes.. etc.

What are you looking for? I buy rims from my LBS, spokes from Childhood Dreams in IL or KS (forget which), hubs usually come out of my stash.
