I'm Ross Speirs, an independent wheel builder in South Oxfordshire. I use quality components to build sturdy, reliable wheels, ideal for cycle touring and commuting.
I offer a small range of wheelsets in 622mm (700C) and 559mm (26") sizes, with 36-hole or 32-hole drilling, Shimano hubs, Sapim spokes, and Exal, Ryde or Mavic rims. A cross-three spoking pattern is used as standard. I also offer differential spoking on rear wheels, with double-butted spokes on the left side and plain gauge on the right (drive) side.
Components not held in stock can be supplied as special orders; for example, dynamo hubs, DT Swiss rims and DT Swiss spokes. I don't stock or use black spokes.
Most wheels are built to order, but I occasionally offer a few built wheelsets, and components, for sale.
I'm also proud to supply handbuilt wheels to touring/trekking bike specialist Oxford Bike Works.
I was originally taught wheelbuilding by Alf and Theresa Webb, at the Bike-Inn in Lincolnshire.
