Wheel service options

email:rule4cycles@gmail.com
Many 'factory wheels' are not finished well and are actually under tensioned when sold. This can lead to wheels getting easily buckled when riding, regularly breaking spokes, rims cracking, imprecise steering from front wheel and loss of drive efficiency from rear wheel. Rule 4 Cycles can offer a number of packages to repair, re-true, re-tension and rebuild your wheels, along with a complete custom wheel build option.
PLEASE NOTE: Spokes can only be re-tensioned/ Wheels trued where the spoke nipples have not siezed and a collection and return cost will be charged for wheels not dropped in to the workshop.
