    Please recommend a wheel truing magician in SEPA

    I've got a relatively new set of wheels that need some more involved truing, not just the usual tuneup. The spoke tension is way off and I'm thinking the rims may have been a little warped from the beginning and/or they weren't built right.

    Can anyone recommend a shop that can work some magic?

    Howdy Rumblefish29. I'm not sure where in SEPA you are. I live in SEPA close to the MD/DE line and use either Wooden Wheels or Henry's for maintenance/service I am not comfortable doing myself. Both are in Delaware so not sure that will work for you. Both are also close to trail systems so you can demo their work immediately after. Henry's is right at White Clay/Middle Run and Wooden Wheels (Wilmington) is right by Brandywine Creek State Park.

    If you are a little further north than the shops the previous person posted, I would highly recommend Twisted Cog Bike Shop in Phoenixville PA! The owner Ed recently built up a new set of wheels for me this past winter and they came out amazing. Either Ed or his other mechanic Ryan will get you all squared away. They are on Bridge street right in downtown Phoenixville

    P.S. I am in no way affiliated, they are just a great shop

    I am in the KOP area and you are not the first to mention these guys. I'll probably give them a shot. Thanks!

    Ed at Twisted Cog for sure. If you're in the city, then Fuzzy at Bicycle Revolutions, but out your way, Ed Bush is a wheel wizard.
