ABOUT


Custom built wheels from Talbot Wheelworks

Wheels built by a self confessed ‘bicycle wheel obsessive’ with an eye for detail, the patience to build with care, and a view to crafting a finished product to last. Talbot Wheelworks can build with whatever rim and hub combination you require (within reason) for any cycling discipline you may wish.

Wheels for commuting workhorses, road bikes, offroad, BMX, tandem, touring, recumbents, electric bikes, folders, cyclocross, etc.; we can tailor a wheel to your specific needs.

We offer a range of rim and hub combinations. We build with rims from DT Swiss, Mavic, H Plus Son, Velocity, Stan’s No Tubes, Ryde, Enve, Whisky Components, Reynolds, Far Sports, Light Bicycle, Alchemist, Halo, Ambrosio, Pacenti, Kinlin, Alex Rims, Flo, Ghisallo, etc.
Hubs available include Shimano, Campagnolo, Hope, DT Swiss, Chris KIng, Ambrosio, Novatec, Tune, Mack, Curtis Odom, Goldtec, Royce, Miche, PMP, White Industries, Paul Components, Velocity, Phil Wood, Chosen, Zenith, Shutter Precision, Extra Lite, Powertap, American Classic, Rohloff, etc.

Our main spoke manufacturer of choice is Sapim, though DT Swiss and Pillar are also used depending on the build.

The name ‘Talbot Wheelworks’ refers to the heritage of our business. From 1949 to 2010 our shop was run by the Talbot family who built many products on the site including bikes and mopeds.
