Hand Built Wheels

Want/Need some custom hand built wheels for your ride?  The best upgrade for a bike is the wheel set.  Did you know that most the component weight on a bike is actually the wheel set and not always the frame?  Rolling ability, strength, pawl engagement, spoke design, and rim stiffness are all factors that make wheels strong and fast.  Hand built wheels have the most even spoke tension verses machine built wheels that come on most bikes from the factory.  Having hand built wheels means the wheel set was laced up with chosen components to fit your needs as a rider and they will stay true much longer.  We can also hand build wheels and reuse your own hubs if they are in good condition.  This would be for when the rim is bent or you want something better/stronger.  Come in to discuss and we can educate you on what components will make up the best wheels for you and your bikes purpose.   Luke is our resident wheel builder here at the Fountain City Pedaler with 15 years of experience.   His work is guaranteed and even spent some time at the American Bicycle Group/Litespeed Bicycles forming carbon fiber and building aero wheel sets.  Life time adjustments are included on our hand built wheel sets.  …700c, 26″, 29″, 27.5″, 20″, 24″, 27″…no problem.  Here are just a few of the Fountain City Pedaler wheel builds from the past.  001005 014
