Wheel Building
« on: 10 Dec 2010 at 16:49 »
Has any one have any experience with Brickwood Wheel Builders in the UK. They are doing some work for me and I am, lets say, having issues! and I was wondering what other members experiences may be. If you are not happy about posting your reply on here then I would appreciate a PM. It will go no further, just for information only.
Cheers
Andy

This really is the conclusion!! I have bought the beaded edge rear rim from Richards Brothers in Cardiff. Drilled and dimpled. All they need is rim size and hub centre to hub spoke hole diameter to work out drill & dimple positions and angles. Brilliant service, cannot recommend highly enough. They, unfortunately, don't make bike spokes so I got them made by the Devon Rim Company. Again, Brilliant service. I have no connection with either company but just a very happy customer.
The EW moves 1 step closer to the road! :D :D
