Can anyone recomend me someone in Qld Australia? Pref on the Gold Coast?

there used to be a guy named Bill Kearney around Tweed Heads who owned a bike shop, I think it's still there (directly accross the highway from Tweed City Shopping Centre)- he once built me up a set of Ambrosio rims with Shimano 600 hubs (back in the time when Shimano 600 was hot) - they lasted for years - actually they are still rolling.

He used to race track bikes I think.

Mike's Bikes further north supposed to be pretty good as well.

I'm not to sure about on the Goldie but had a set of wheels built by Tom Wallace cycles in Lutwyche with Velocity Deep V's, Ultegra hubs and bladed spokes. The owner Ben is a quality guy and customer service is very good. These wheels were fantastic and had no problems with them going out of true.
