Custom Hand Built Wheelsets
Richards Bicycles builds some of the best hand built wheelsets in the bicycling market. Each wheel or wheelset that we sell is hand built by our professional wheel builder, who has been building wheels with us for over 25 years. He has more experience building top of the line wheels than almost any other person in the industry, and we guarantee our wheel builds to be the best that you can find. When your wheelset is built, each spoke is individually prepped using spoke-tite and tensioned by hand, ensuring a wheelset that remains strong & true for many years to come. Many other wheel builders do not go to such lengths to ensure a perfect wheel build. Together, our team has over 120 combined years of experience with bicycles and we stand by every product we sell.
Shipping & Build Time
Because all of our Chris King, Industry Nine, Hadley & Hope wheelsets are all hand built in house as they're ordered, wheels are generally built within 1 week and shipped immediately after. Generally speaking, most customers receive their wheelsets within 2 weeks of ordering their wheels; however in some instances certain color / sizes hubs may not always be immediately available which could add to shipping time. If there is going to be any added delay because of product availabity, we'll let you know immediately. Thanks for your patience and cooperation!
