Custom Touring Wheels Final Thoughts
The custom wheel build took about three weeks to complete. Pro-Wheel Builder notified me the day they shipped and included a tracking number. Unfortunately, there was a delay in the shipping process at the fault of the United States Postal Service. All in all, it took me about five weeks to get my new wheels. When they finally arrived, I was thrilled. It seems weird to say, but they were beautiful.
The DT Swiss rims and the Schwalbe tires combination is definitely tubeless ready. Before adding the sealant, I shot a burst of air into the tire to pop the bead, and the air held. I was impressed.
If someone told me a year ago that I would be spending this much money for a set of bicycle wheels, I would have said they were nuts. At this price, I had better be rolling around on these babies for decades.
