Can anyone tell me of a good road wheel builder in Melbourne.

I'm in Sydney... oh wait - you meant a _professional_ wheelbuilder :)

Perhaps it is you!

Hubs, spokes, rims, nipples, QR-skewers, oil, spoke key, screwdriver (optional) and a truing stand are all you need. Some people don't need a truing stand as they use the bike frame/fork as the reference.

Try this link for starters and go from there.

ME!

No, really I've done 250+ pairs for paying customers.

. . . but that would involve revealing my secret Super-B Thermo Long Underwear identity, and breaching the Industry Employee mailing-list code of silence (self-imposed) . . .

msg me off list if interested

Perhaps you need to secretly get some one else to recommend you, thus avoiding revealing your true identity. A sort of "wheels for
comment"

Thanks for the replys. I have been intending to build the wheel myself but it is a rear wheel. So if I get into difficulties I would like to know of a good place to take it in order to fix the disaster I create.

but I was being so hopelessly tongue in cheek that I almost choked myself. Got all the work on at the mo that we can cope with, but I do enjoy building good wheels.
