Lifetime Truing

Wheelbuilder offers free lifetime truing for all custom-built wheels. We can confidently make this offer because a well-built wheel shouldn't need to be retouched after it leaves the builder's stand.

There's a common misconception that you need to bring back a hand built wheel after a break-in period for a "touch up." While it's possible that a wheel may need a slight adjustment from time to time, that is absolutely the exception, not the rule. Builders who require this extra step don't understand the spoke stress relieving process, so you do it by riding your bike. The Wheelbuilder process ensures that when we ship a customer's wheel, the spoke tension is uniformly balanced and set at a standard well beyond industry-tolerated values.
