Could someone recommend a wheel builder that actually knows how to build a wheel correctly (professional, someone that has built more than a few, like maybe 100's of wheels)? I would prefer responses from people who have actually had someone build them a wheel and were happy with the results. I need this hub

rim for a motorized bike build. Thank you.

And what is the average cost for building a wheel if we provide the wheel and hub, you provide spokes and labor?

I attended united bicycle institute in Ashland Or. in the 80's and have been building wheels ever since. I'm the head mechanic and service manager at Hutch's Bikes ( part of Oregon Bicycle Sports) in Springfield Or.

I charge $45. LABOR for wheel builds and I have built 100's over the years...

spokes run $1.00 and up depending on spokes. Straight gauge are cheapest. Double butted are better and stronger.
Check out Sapim spokes. They have a wide range to choose from.

How would I go about getting that if, or should I say, since, I can't make it to the event? Also, why is my name on there? ;)
