Hand built wheels are a real pleasure to own and ride. Whatever type of bike you want them for, they’re a fantastic upgrade and give you the chance to create and own a set of fully customised wheels.
A wheel upgrade is perhaps the easiest but most transformational upgrade you can make to your bike. Ask anyone who has invested in a wheel set and they will tell you that they completely change your bike making it more responsive, faster and simply more enjoyable to ride.
We are able to offer advice on component choice and can supply hubs, rims and spokes from a long list of manufacturers including Shimano, DT Swiss, Campagnolo, Sapim, Hope, Mavic, Michi and many others.
From a CX race set to a winter training set to a basic upgrade from the wheelset that came on your bike we can help.
Below are some example wheel builds. These give a basic guide to what can be achieved.
Remember these are handbuilt wheels on your choice of components that will be skilfully trued and tensioned, so pricing should not be compared to off the peg wheel sets.
Wheel building is free of charge when all components are purchased from DIB. Our standard build charge is £45.00 per wheel if components are purchased elsewhere.
