Bicycle Wheel Building

Wheel building skills you can trust. We can build any kind of wheel, to any pattern with your choice of components, to the highest professional standards. In wheel-building, there is no substitute for experience and that’s what you get at Bournemouth Cycleworks. All our hand built wheels are custom built by us, to some of the most exacting standards anywhere in the world right here on the premises, exactly to our customers requirements. Call the workshop to enquire on 01202 424945 – or get in touch

Hand-built Wheels are the ultimate upgrade for any bike.

Lighter and stronger than stock wheels, they increase acceleration, improve handling, increase maximum speed and reduce the amount of effort needed to maintain that speed.

Strength and dependability speak for themselves.  If you ride hand built then you’ll ride longer, ride faster and ride happier. The time, care and craft that goes into lacing, bedding in, tensioning, truing and balancing your wheels far exceeds that of stock factory wheels and many wheels built by other shops.

Wheel Building - Spoke Tension ReportWork you can trust

All our wheels come with a spoke tension report, a tune up after the initial bedding in period, and free tune ups for the first year! We stand by our work, so you don’t have to worry.
