Hi Folks
Please could someone give me some advice regarding wheel building. I recently found a pair of TT wheels (Wolber rims, Campag nuovo record hubs, chrome aero spokes on the front) which I last used 20 years ago tucked away in the shed. The Wolber Record Route 18 SP1's tyres have had it. The wheel have very little wear but the spokes on the rear wheel are very corroded (rims and hubs look mint through). I want to get them re-built with fresh spokes.

Can anyone recommend a wheel builder in the Guildford/West Surrey area?
Apologies if this is in the wrong section. First post!

Thanks

Quentin

Folks

Thanks for the suggestions. The Aldershot option sounds like it is best for me (work is close by).

Regards

Quentin

:D
Yes, I always had the feeling of being the guy in the HiFi shop on 'Not the Nine O'Clock News' there....

...I am not worthy...

They looked down their noses at my Litespeed as it was:
(a) Over 3 years old
(b) MIXED Record and Chorus :shock:

But they do know their stuff.
