I am in the market for a pair light wheels and I don't like any of the big company offerings.

Who builds nice custom wheels? Looking for non-disc under 1500g.


Thanks :thumbup:

If you are located in Europe when try xx-light-bikes - i have had 5-6 wheelbuilds from him and they have been really good. My lastest wheelset is not lightweight but a compromise between weight and durability.

DT240S hubs (6 holes)
DT Revolution spokes and alu nipples
FRM XMD333 rims

Weight is 1369 grams with rimstrip.

I make beautiful ones. Have made them for many a pro and company. I built a couple of sets for Gary Fisher also. Non-Disc, Usually around 1350 grams for something solid and light. I can go lighter, But I like the wheels to last.

Sory about that. I wasn't commenting on the post to hit up someone for business or something. So, sorry about that. Lol I was more just commenting on that I make great wheels. lol

Anyways, yep, I do make great wheels and have done so for over 20 years. I have built many a wheelset for different builders like SpeedDream, Fuji, Scott Moninger and tons of others. So, if there is any questions you have, let me know.
