Custom Wheel Builds
Hutch’s Bicycles has specialized in hand-built wheels for over 38 years. Hand built wheels are more durable than machine-built wheels. Spoke tension is brought up slowly and the spokes are given the time to settle in and stretch. The more wheels a mechanic builds, the better they will get at it. Our team are masters. Hutch’s Bicycles has had customers come back multiple times for different wheels because they know they will get the best quality hand-built wheels available. Here are a few advantages of wheels built by Hutch's Bicycles:
All wheels are laced using Wheelsmith brand Spoke Prep thread lock to ensure longer life.
Light oil lubrication is used between the nipples and rims during the build
All wheels are trued to within 0.5mm tolerance for both lateral and vertical movement when they leave our facility.
All wheels have less than a 5% tension variance between spokes when they leave our facility.
All wheels are dished correctly.
All wheelsets are hand-stressed to minimize any spoke wind-up.
All wheelsets are built with the same attention to detail regardless of price.
