  • Custom built wheels are not returnable.
  • Payment is taken just prior to the build process.
  • Once the build is started, it is too late to cancel the order.
  • We use DT 2.0/1.8 double-butted spokes on most builds.

    Some very unique wheelbuilds with non-traditional components will be charged a higher labor rate than those listed above. Customers will be contacted before we proceed.
