A little bit about us...

Wheelbuilding in the family began in Grangemouth, Central Scotland. Derek's Great Grandfather started building frames between the wars, while his grandmother built the wheels and bikes up until the 60s. It's in the blood.

Testimonials

Hi Derek, thanks for rebuilding my ENVE rims into a realistic hub - the Tunes haven't lasted long at all and I am still peeved at the issues getting spares for them. Anyway, the DT hubs seem to make a stiffer wheel just like you said - and at leas now I know I can get spokes if any get damaged. I have another pair, Ambrosio F20 Crono on Tune hubs I'd like you to do the same to. Will call. Thanks for now, T.Read more
Hi D, enjoying the Ascents this year already. They are everything your "test rider" claimed - also, I found them very quiet (compared to my Zipps) and the DT free hub is silky smooth. I have neglected a little and left them with salty water on them but after a clean I found no ill-effects. Just set them up tubeless and can testify for your other customers assistance, it is an absolute doddle with the Schwalbe Pro Ones. Many thanks again, K.
Hello Wheelsmith,Just a note after last year and this year so far on the Race30s. I use them for EVERYTHNG and they are grand. Your advice to go up a few spokes for commuting and that stands true. I got a top 10 on my local APR last weekend - wasn't expecting that. And I rode home and used them all week for work. You can't beat riding your race bike to work and thrashing it at the weekend. I've done 21K on them so far and they've not even squeaked. Crap Irish roads too! Chuffed to bits, G
DerekJust wanted to send a very quick "Many Thanks" for the gravel wheelset I purchased recently. They are truly awesome! No other way to put it.Thank you. A.
Hey Derek, just a note to thank you for the Training wheel set. Much better than the price and pictures can tell you. I've been using them all year so far actually as my "best bike" is just too good for me right now but fitness is coming back with the miles and these wheels have been exemplary. They are sure footed and because they are fairly cheap I've been hammering them with much abandon - no problems whatsoever. I'm after a set of TT wheels now so will call soon. Thanks again, D.
Hi Derek. New wheels are amazing - running schwalbe pro ones on the tubeless rims. The pick up in speed going over the top of climbs is so impressive. Speed is up and watts are down! Every time I've ridden on these wheels so far I've always taken the long way home!Best wheels I've ridden!Thanks, B.
Hi Derek, thanks for the wheels - lovely job and the fastest I've had. Glad you managed to get them out before you took a break. Hope that is going well mate - you deserve it. Cheers, K.
Hi Derek, don't want to bother you but just a note to thank you so much for the 2 pairs of wheels we purchased from you last year. They have been un and down countless thousand of metres of climbing in France, Italy and Spain over the last year and never a ping or pong out of line. Lovely ride and a complete turnaround from the "free" wheels that came with our bikes. Cheers boys, R.
Hi Wheelsmith lads, Just getting around to thanking you for the quick turnaround when I needed the Race30s for the opening season event - super stuff - and these wheels are such a massive improvement on the 3 sets of wheels I already have. I've spent far too much on "proprietary" wheels over the years and still have a pair of Shimano sitting unable to get spares for. Handbuilts is the way for me now. Cheers lads, P.
