pulled this wheelset off ye olde Fuji mountain bike and a very short time later slapped them back on with fresh tires they're good to go 25 more years

the front wheel was good to go with a light dusting and pulling the vines growing out of the spokes

the rear took some hits but the spokes and nipples were rather responsive and these hits might have been from the donation dumpster and not from actual riding

hand built makes a difference day to day as well as years and years down the road   a HUGE difference

Grant P used to rave about Winkel in the early days of Rivendell. All the Riv wheels came from Winkel wheel in those days, I think they were located in Kent? Pretty sure they got bought out by Vision recumbents, then Vision went under in the early 2000's and that was the end of that.
