RyanBuildsWheels Ready to Roll wheelsets

All of our Ready to Roll Wheelsets are lovingly laced at the RyanBuildsWheels workshop in Bristol, UK. They’re made to order and can be shipped to almost anywhere in the World.

Our Ready to Roll Wheelsets are made from a handpicked collection of our favourite hubs, rims, spokes and nipples. These parts have been carefully selected to offer us the best quality of build and our customers the best quality of ride. They’re built to balance strength, weight, longevity and value.

These wheelsets offer all the benefits of handbuilt, custom wheels without the added cost of a fully bespoke build.
