Handbuilt wheelset for someone 100kg

Postby Cupras » Wed Oct 16, 2013 23:41 pm

Ok so after looking around I have realised I will be better off getting new wheels hand built.
I have no set budget at the moment however I am all about price/performance ratio.
My bike is a blue Giant Defy 1 2014 so something that would look good on that would be nice but I will p take function over form.
I would just like a light set of wheels that will stay true and roll well (don't we all)
Any suggestions on what parts I should use for my wheels and weather the LBS is the best place to take them to be built?

As for who... depends where you are based, there are shops who build good wheels, others that should not... or you might be lucky enough to live next door to Harry Rowland without even knowing it... :wink:
