Recently sent my wheelset to Photographer for some truing & tuning. He did a great job I must say.

Want to share my recent experience. Bought an HED Ardennes plus LT on sale on CC and it came on a Saturday - fitted  this on my road Focus Cayo Alu frame with a 28mm to improve my ride for training.

The frame can barely fit a 28mm with just a mere 1-2mm clearance on each side of chainstays but the ride is very comfortable. However the wheel was not true and was hitting the chainstays and the shifting was bad.

After checking togoparts forums and internet, contacted a number of bike shops and wheel builders on a Sunday for truing and no one really available to confirm. Managed to get hold of Peter and was kind enough to accomodate me and finished the job on a Sunday in two hours!! I did not expect this to be completed that soon as Peter had set the expectation that it will take time and there is no waiting time. Great service! Peter showed me his wheelset building equipment and demonstrated that the wheelset was still true but the tensions on the spokes where not even - and this could cause the wheel to go out of true when weight (body/bike) is applied causing it to wobble and not shift well.

After 2-3 hours work, the wheelset was dead true and stiff - the 1-2mm clearance was consistent all throughout the revolution and the tire was no longer hitting the chainstays and shifting smoothly without adjusting the derailleurs. Perfect truing skills.

I did a 75km cycle on the new tire and can't reiterate enough a good set of wheelset to transform your bike. Its like I am now riding a good quality carbon frame with road buzz significantly reduced. My usual 75-100km rides leaves my upper body aching from the road buzz but now I feel more relaxed.

Saw Peter's Venn carbon rims and will consider building a carbon wheelset in the future using his services. A quality wheelset build can go a long way in terms of safety and enjoying the ride. Thanks Peter for the excellent and fast track service!

Thanks also to Togoparts forum for sharing reliable wheelbuilders in Singapore.

My last 2 wheelset were built by Peter.  To make the story simple, im 130kg. Brought my bike to Bromo, kiara amongst many trails.  Had many falls, i've broken my swing arm, dropper, cracked linkages etc but never once did the wheels go out of true.  Thats a testament to Peter's work. Will never go to another wheel builder.  Kudos Peter for the excellent job.  Nice and friendly chap too!

Hi guys

any idea on the tolerance that you consider as a trued wheel?

Formerly posted by SeyKai: Hi guys

for a new set of built wheel tolerance on lateral and radial is should be within 0.25mm
 
for wheel with brake wall tolerance 0.50mm-0.75mm

spoke tolerance to rim manufacturer specfication

no wheel will last forever unless you leave it in the show case

every roll with rider on bike is a cycle to spokes stress every pound for pound you pump

hard on your pedal is a stress to spokes crank to chain to hub torsion twist to hub and spokes

 spokes do wear out

Thanks for the reply . another question - does more yielding spoke material e.g titanium or aluminium gives better ride comfort without the brake rub ?

Peter is a champion wheel builder, I have had him tune all of my wheels and he really gets new life into them. I just got him to build a new set for me with Onyx Hubs.

After I go back to Australia I am trying to work out how I can bring my wheels back to SG for him to work on.

Wheels are something you are putting all your weight on (70+kg including bike) traveling 30-50km/h you want to go with someone you trust + trust there skills as your life is in their hands.
