    Wheelbuilders in SoCa

    I am running some 3.1 UST Disc mavs on FS ride and want to upgrade the hubs. Pretty much no name hub, but the rim is awesome. Can anyone recommend a wheelbuilder in SoCa that can do this? I'll get everthing replaced (hub, spokes, etc), but I would like to keep the rim. If the wheel builder is near Ventura Co, that would be a plus, but I would have no problem sending them out. Thanks in advance for the recommendations.

    The Path Bike Shop in Tustin, CA builds some of the best wheels around.
    Seriously, you can't go wrong.
    Tell 'em Padre sent you, or don't...but do yourself a favor and make the call at least.. I'm a brute of a guy and wouldn't trust a build to anyone else.
    They do it right as if building for themselves.

    p.s. the owner Tani, the head mechanic Karl, and Brad, have personally built me wheels that last years of heavy, heavy, use and abuse.
