    Need recommendation for far east valley wheel service

    While refilling my tubeless sealant this evening I was checking out my rear wheel and noticed that most of the spokes feel quite loose, pressing against them they have quite a bit of play. The spokes on the front wheel were tighter although still felt looser than what I would expect. I consider myself a competent home mechanic but I don't think I want to tackle working on my wheels. Does anyone have a recommendation on where I should take my wheels to have them checked out?

    EDIT: deleted rant on DNA and substituted Rage as the answer to your question.

    Not exactly far east valley but Peter know wheels. I trust him so I make the drive when I need a wheel built.

    Im not a master wheel builder by title but I have built a half dozen wheel sets for myself over the years. I have all the tools necessary and would be glad to throw them on the trueing stand for you. Im out at Brown and Ellsworth. Some people are particular about who builds/touches their wheels so I wont be offended if you are not interested.

    Huge thanks to Douger for your help, taught me a few things about checking and fixing rims and got my bike rolling again. Hope to the ride with you sometime!
