I actually was going to purchase some of his wheels last fall but I had to change plans (I needed new wheels immediately and couldn’t wait unfortunately). I’d spoken with him on the phone for a total of about 2 hours or so and came to the conclusion that for the price/weight they would have been a kick-butt deal, not to mention Troy’s work is essentially bikeporn, in that it is pleasing to look at. Give him a call and leave a message letting him know what your needs are, and how much money you can spend. Surely he’ll have a wheelset in mind for your needs.

I already have my wheels planned out. I want to know how to paint the White Industries logo without making a mess. I looked through like 20 pages of his wheels that gave me great ideas for my wheels.

Nice looking. How do they stack up pin the critical areas of weight, price and durability?

Please advise
Some of that depends on the components chosen by the customer, but as to build quality, which is very important to the durability of a wheel, I'd say it's as good as it gets. His prices are very reasonable. My LBS charges almost twice what he does to lace up a wheel, and I doubt they have as much experience.

They really look awesome! About how long did it take?

But there is no easy way other than by hand and brush? That looks really cool but I don't know if i have the steady hand to do that.

If I do try and do it and mess up will a solvent hurt White Industries polished finish?

On kind of a side note, how are Wheelsmith's spoke? I want black spokes that are some what light and a little more affordable than the CX-Ray's. Do the AE spokes come in black? If not how are the DB spokes?
