    Who do you trust to build your wheel?

    Hey all, I'm still relatively new to the area. I need to have a rear wheel built and am wondering who you'd say the best builder here is? I'm a clyde and do small/mid drops (I beat the hell out of my wheels).

    Thanks in advance!

    Ray Ray over at Southern Highlands Cyclery is probably the best and most experienced wheel builder in Las Vegas. IMHO

    Appreciate the input. I didn't see this last post, went with peloton sports on the recommendation from broken spoke. I brought them my beat to hell wheel (king hub/flow29er rim) and They had my wheel done in less than 24 hours. Nice folks

    Just a quick follow up post - Peloton built up a sturdy wheel. I've beat it up a couple of times and its true. Good, fast service, had my wheel back on my bike in <24 hours

    That's a great question. Honestly, no one here - sorry. I have had every wheel built through The Bike Co. in Lake Forest, CA. If they build wheels for Brian Lopes and Hans Rey, then I think they can do it right. I know, support LBS, but we all buy more stuff of the web anyway, so how does this hurt? I used to live there and they just continue to build my wheels. When I need a new wheel (like every 3 years) I just ship the wheels (or hubs) back and they relace my Kings with a new rim. Good luck!
