Custom Wheel Building
The Service Mécanique Vélo has the ability to build any custom wheels you can imagine. I will take the time to understand your specific needs based on your budget and riding style to hand select the perfect wheel set. Custom wheels are often a better choice than pre-built wheels because I can individually select the actual build design to match your riding needs. In addition to the build design, I can customize the parts in ways pre-built wheels are not always available. I will do all this and still keep the labor to CHF 35.00 as long as you purchase all the pieces from us.
The mass produced lugged bicycle is long gone. Today, lugged construction is found primarily on quality, hand made bicycles. The added technical and esthetic values offset the added labor of lugged construction. Custom bicycle enthusiasts appreciate the technical superiority, better reliability, longer life, and great looks of a well made lugged frame.
Silver brazed construction with lugs reinforces the joints, so the frame has added strength where it is needed. Building with lugs also allows the frame builder’s artistry to come through in the finished product.
