Building wheels is a craft that requires knowledge and patience. I am an engineer by trade. As such I have the innate mechanical aptitude and attention to technical detail necessary for quality wheel building. What I can build you is a high quality carbon fiber or aluminum wheelset that fits your needs. I do not make compromises; every component we (because this is a collaboration between you and I) decide to use is of the highest quality. Learn more about PSIMET custom wheels.
