An excellent alternative to a pair of 'factory built' off the shelf wheels, hand built hoops are back in vogue and very popular.
They are built specific to the needs and wants of the rider, and the conditions they might face out on the road, pave or off-road.
Component choice is important and we are able to offer advice on a large variety of rims, hubs and spokes. Some of our favourite brands are DT Swiss, Mavic, H+Son, Hope and Chris King, and we will happily order in preferred rims and hubs.
We can also rebuild your existing wheels. Please give us a shout or pop in to have a chat about a beautiful new pair of wheels, built just for you.
Getting a new bike built, or upgrading a group set on a an old faithful can be far more exciting than buying a bike off the shelf.
We love a good bike build in the Imperial Workshop, see below for a breakdown of the build process and associated cost.
Mechanical Groupset build - £130
EPS or Di2 Groupset build - £150
TT or Triathlon Bike build - £200
If either the frameset or components are purchased from Imperial
Cycles, apply 50% reduction from the appropriate price above.
If all components and frameset are purchased from Imperial Cycles, the build is FREE.
All used parts will be fully degreased and cleaned as part of the build.
Please note that often with a frame swap, things like seat post, seat clamp and front derailleur may have to be replaced due to differing sizes of seat tubes.
