AEROC CERTIFIED MASTER WHEELBUILDER
Rob has been involved in the cycle industry since 1981 and started wheel building in the late seventies. After clocking up around 25 wins in road and TT racing in the 1980s (all wins were on his own wheel builds) he spent some time working as a sales agent supplying brands such as DT Swiss & Park tools to the cycle trade.
" Every wheel I hand-build now, I create with the same care and attention as those race-winning wheels I built for myself all those years ago - Quite simply, they have to be perfect!" Rob is also keen to explain "Bedding in spokes during the build with equal and correct spoke tension is crucial to a great wheel"
Rob is a keen advocate of tubeless technology and is happy to give advice based on his own riding and his deep understanding of everything bike.
