I've got Akront alloy rims laced on by Hagon in Essex. Very pleased.

I bought a pair of Talon wheels from Devon Rim Co.
They are excellent, Talon hubs, straight pull stainless spokes, laced to Behr alloy rims.

they are not listed on the website, for info contact Doug Richardson 01769574108

+1 for Morad. Made in Spain alloy rims and God knows their economy could use the boost

Got mine through my CWC distributor up the road. Walridge Motors (Mike) if you want a North American distributor. Pricing was attractive. He can get them laced for you too by an 85 year old guy named Jock who used to do it for a living and does it perfectly.

Don't mean to hijack the thread but does anyone know of a good place in California or the United States to get spoked wheels and have them laced and balanced? I'm mainly interested in the Excel rims because you can get a tubeless version.

Andrew, you sure that you can get a tubeless version? I doubt if they are available but if they are I want them too.
