Wheels building and repair

image2

Wheel service (£15)

Close inspection of rim and spokes, with adjustments to correct buckles and flat spots. It is not always possible to completely remove all wheel buckles and flat spots.

New spokes needed? ... for an additional £5 up to 2 spokes to be replaced however if tyres not already removed a £5 tyre & inner tube removal and refit fee applies or £10 for  tubeless tyre removal, rim tape repair and refit. 


Spoke length calculation fee applies if old spokes are too damaged to be measured. If you have spare spokes received with your wheel, bring them along with the wheel to avoid possible additional charges.

Excludes spokes and rim tape (if required)

Custom wheel build (from £25)

Wheels built to your specification.


Tangential, radial or radial-tangential lacing patterns.


If you'd like to supply the parts please ensure you have the correct spoke types and lengths for the combination of rim, hub and lacing pattern you require.
If you supply incorrect spokes, this will not become apparent until the lacing process is nearing completion, at which point the wheel be disassembled and the correct spokes ordered, this will incur additional charge along with the spoke length calculation fee.


Wheel conversion / rebuild (from £30)

Dismantling existing wheel and rebuilding with new hub, rim or spokes. This is slightly more than a custom wheel build as it involves dismantling your existing wheel in order to install either a new hub, a new rim or replace all the spokes; with the remaining parts of the existing wheel being re-used. 


New spokes and nipples are recommended for new hubs or rims unless the wheel is relatively new. 

If you'd like to supply the parts please ensure you have the correct spoke types and lengths for the combination of rim, hub and lacing pattern you require.

 If you supply incorrect spokes, this will not become apparent until the lacing process is nearing completion, at which point the wheel be disassembled and the correct spokes ordered, this will incur additional charge along with the spoke length calculation fee. 

If the new hub or rim is different to the existing one it may result in the need for different length spokes. 

Spoke length calculation fee applies if you require me supply the spokes.

If tyres not already removed a £5 tyre & inner tube removal and refit fee applies or £10 for  tubeless tyre removal and refit.

Spoke length calculation (£7.50)

Supply of any replacement spokes requires the exact length of spoke to be known. If it is not possible to measure the length of broken spokes (to be replaced) or in the event of a conversion, it may be necessary to perform a complex set of measurements to establish the correct spoke lengths.
