Lee Powell & Dave Mellor

Dave Mellor Cycles are blessed to have two Master Wheel Builders in Lee Powell and Dave Mellor. Dave himself was taught to build wheels by Cyclo Cross star Graham Bufton who built pro team wheels for the best pro riders of his time including Sid Barras, Keith Lambert, and Shane Sutton. Dave went on to build wheels for some of the very best racers in road, cyclocross, and mountain biking including the legends Rob Warner and Steve Peat.
Lee Powell was taught his craft by multi National Track Champion Paul Sydenham. Lee has built wheels from the traditional 3 and 4 x cross touring wheels, lasting a lifetime under his careful eye, to some of the most complex hub and rim combinations modern-day cycling has to offer off road or on it! Lee considers the art of wheel building to be relaxing and satisfying and his passion for perfection continues to provide long-lasting performance wheels to all of our clients.
