wheel rebuilding

Post  bessybarnett on Thu Jun 20, 2013 2:40 pm

Hi Guys

As you may see from my recent question on tyres for my Kestrel, I am also in the process of deciding where to go to have my wheels rebuilt. I know it is not 'correct', for a Kestrel 66, to have chromed wheels but I am going in that direction, including lacing with stainless steel spokes, all for ease of maintenance, and of course good looks!! I know it ain't going to be cheap, but I am thinking of using 'Central wheels' close by me. The work will also include powder coating the hubs and brake plates also by CW. I would be grateful if anyone can give me the benefit of their own experience with 'Central Wheels'.  Were you happy with the results including any powdercoating? Is it foolish to ask them to powdercoat the rest of the bike? or can anyone recommend a better wheel building company and paint specialist.

Thanks again for any advice.
