I've just picked up a minty set of Mavic D521 CD rims and will need them built up (once I've bought hubs).

Does anyone know of/can recommend any good wheel builders in South Wales :?:

I've been told that the guys at Wheelies in Uplands, Swansea are good but I don't have any personal experience.

Just been to see the owner of Extreme Culture in Pontypridd. They build wheels :D Going to give him a go as he's always been good to me with bike bits, maintenance, advice etc.
And he runs a DH team now so his wheels should be built up nice and strong.
They'll be the Mavic D521CD rims on XT disc hubs. As for spokes, it's got to be black. Nipples, I'll take his advice on that one too :D
