I'm looking for wheel builder for single speed wheels. Does anybody know good wheel builder in Europe?

- Conditions: City (Berlin). Each ride is sequence of 1-5km sprints. Indoor storage.
- Carbon rims. 40-50mm depth. Depth difference on front-rear wheel is OK.
- 700c Clincher. Tubeless ready or compatible is preferred but not required.
- Rim brakes.
- Front hub: track, low flange, 20h, radial lacing
- Rear hub: track, high flange, 24h 2-x cross lacing, chainline 42mm, fix/free is preferable but not required
- Budget: about 1500 euro.

Rims/Hubs/Spokes brands are not important. Colour: black

Thanks for advance!

RAR wheels, probably the best wheel builder in France. After having hubs made by Tune he manufactures his own hubs with the best geometry in the market (but a bit off topic since that’s std road wheels).

thats alot of coin for a track wheelset. You could have Royce hubs and still have change.

Since you're in Germany I'd start looking at Light-Wolf.

Thanks for opinions.

Finally received wheels from DCR. Alto Rims, Phil Wood hubs. Perfect! Masterpiece.
Using Vittoria Corsa G+ and Revoloop.white tubes. Awesome.
