Whether your a weekend warrior or a Cat 1 racer we can help you enjoy riding your bicycle just a little bit more by creating the perfect blend of parts, all while keeping your budget and preferences at the forefront of the process.When selecting components we take into account your weight, riding style, terrain, and price range in order to help you make the most practical decision possible.
Why are custom wheels so much different than the prebuilt wheels at my local bike shop?
There are a few key differences between wheels that are factory built and those that are custom. First off, factory wheel are produced for the masses. When a large manufacturer makes a wheel they are trying to appeal to everyone in the middle of the bell curve, and not specifically to you. With a custom wheel, every single part is selected from an array of different manufacturers in order to make your ideal wheel set. Factors like weight, riding style, conditions, and intended use all go into making what you can rely on to be your favorite set of wheels day in and out.
Why do we have prebuilt wheelsets? Aren’t we supposed to be a custom wheel company?
The prebuilt wheels on our websites are simply ideas to get people thinking about what may be suitable for them. The prebuilt wheels are some of our favorite options that we prefer. However, we are not limited to those options. If you want to go full custom, start browsing through our components, and shoot us an email.
How long will it take to get my wheels? And do we keep you posted on build progress?
Turnaround time on wheels can vary greatly depending on what exactly your looking to do. Most parts we have in stock. Many can be ordered within a few days. However some manufacturers do take 4-6 weeks to deliver parts. If this is the case with an order, you will be notified immediately. Most custom builds take 3-5 weeks to complete.
The Reincarnation Program is essentially a lifetime crash replacment guarantee. If you total your wheelset beyond repair and need replacement parts, we give all labor and parts to rebuild your wheels at 20% above or cost. This is for the lifetime of the wheelset.
We guarantee that you will be completely satisfied with your wheelset. If you are not, we will do everything that we can to make the situation right so that you can get back out on the bike. If you have any questions or comments feel free to drop us a ring at (208) 549-9936.
