    Local wheel builder recommendation?

    I'm looking for some help with recomendations for wheel builders in The SF Bay Area or Santa Rosa area. Looking for folks who know how to build up carbon rims....

    Thanks in advance.

    I agree. Whomever Lars has building wheels does a fantastic job. Iíve had three wheelsets built by them (two of them with carbon hoops) and the only issue Iíve experienced in close to 5,000 miles of riding is one spoke breaking at the nipple.
    Uh oh! Someone just stole your KOM!

    I just had my rear wheel rebuilt by Michael at Cognition Cyclery in San Mateo. I'm very impressed with it so far...
