    Best wheel builder in southern ON.

    Looking for a good wheel builder. Couldnt resist CRCs price on a brand new hope rear hub(160.00 can with free shipping)

    So im looking for a good builder. I live near collingwood(owensound) but often visit barrie, kitchener and orangeville. What does a build usually cost? Its my first time.

    Thanks

    Don't know about the best wheel builder, but I have heard good things about the guys at Bike Zone in Barrie. Cycle Solutions at the Beaches has some of the best wrenches around and built both my Mavic wheels with Hadley hubs and did an excellent job.

    Yea, Im not sure why I wrote "best". I meant good.

    Thanks for the ideas.

    I had Kris at Kamikaze build me up a set of Stans Arch EX 29er rims on xt hubs back in april. Still true after bashing through 3stages and kolapore all year and I am well over 200lbs with gear. IIRC he charges $50/wheel to build.

    I have also had a good experience with Cycle Solutions. They built me a set of arch ex's on kings and haven't had any issues with them at all!

    Hands down the best IMO is Jamie Davies at Evolution Cycles in Richmond Hill. The guy is a wizard when it comes to bikes and the only one I let to work on my bikes.

    Mike at SpeedRiverCycle in Guelph is great.

    He races O-Cup, and whenever I am there I see him building several crazy exotic wheels for customers.

    He has built all of my carbon wheels perfectly so far and is reasonably priced to boot.
