Cycleman handbuilt wheels

Postby bontie » Sat Jan 12, 2013 14:09 pm

Hi all,

I am considering a set of handbuilt wheels for a classic build - thinking of Ambrosio Excellight on Record hubs. A google search gave wheels on ebay by "cycleman". Have any of you bouhgt from him, how was the build? His prices seem very competitive.

Before you go trusting your cash to an Ebay seller, give some consideration for our own maestro of the wheelbuild - Ugo Santalucia. I believe Ugo is also well into the classic side of our obsession so he would be able to advise from a knowledgeable standpoint.

Recent thread will give you links to his blog:-

FWIW he built me a set last year working to a relatively tight budget - Novatec hubs with Open Pro rims. Great wheels - would recommend you give him a shout
