CERTIFIED AEROC MASTER WHEEL BUILDER
Handbuilt wheels have been part of the workshop since County Cycles opened over 40 years ago.
Currently, handbuilt wheels at County Cycles are built by specialist wheel builder Simon Lewis, who puts his soul into each wheel he builds.
World-famous wheel builders will say there is a black art to wheel building, at County Cycles, Simon says this is true. Whether building performance carbon wheels, dynamo equipped wheels or just a set of aluminium training wheels, he follows his own wheel building procedure, covering each spoke thread with linseed oil and stressing wheels in the final stage of the build to deliver high-quality performance racing wheels. Simon has a ritual of placing all the components to be assembled in the wheel build all around him in strategic order. Simon is proud of his wheel building expertise and has built wheels for cyclists travelling around Europe to triathletes who compete in Kona, as well as their own race team, with one of the members competing in the junior Olympics.
