The art of wheel building

Why are hand-built wheels better?

the wheel is made round and true before tensioning

stress relieving between each round of tightening allows for more even spoke tensions

higher spoke tensions possible through hand building, make livelier more durable wheels

Backed with a three year warranty

Every wheel sold at Perfect Wheels is hand-built by Larry Naylor

After a thousand wheels one may reach a level of understanding.
This understanding allows the craftsman to begin building wheels that sing.
Can a machine do this?
