    need to replace my hub. anyone recommended in glendale/burbank/pasadena area

    need to swap out my front hub and i guess true the wheels while im at it.
    can you guys recommend a shop or individual? what is the average cost for something like this?

    im in glendale, so surrounding areas like burbank or pasadena is fine.
    thanks

    You should just do it yourself if you ride a lot.. cost depends what hub you want. Larry @ Ghisallo Wheels has solid builds if you don't have time.

    I ordered spokes from that wheelbuilder site..once. The spokes they sent were incorrect lengths

    building part i can figure out; i just dont have the truing stand. and my wheels are basic. i just want to use a different fork so i need to switch from QR to 15mm through. my other option is get a used wheel set (again basic) for about 200-300. so if i can get the front hub switched out for a lot less then ill do that. if not i will just buy a used wheel set

    again, if anyone that can do this let me know your price. i dont mind if you work out of your garage or in a shop, as long as you know what you are doing.

    Get a hub from Bike Hub Store and go to your LBS. Usually lace you up for $50 or so. Spokes will cost you about $30. Should be done under $150. If you find a used wheel for less, buy it.
