About KB Wheels
A Little Background
I’m a wheel builder certified by the United Bicycle Institue, and owner of KB Wheels. I’m also a Professional Civil Engineer licensed in the State of California and life long cyclist. In my younger years my passion was racing criteriums, but as a Cat 3 I finally had to admit I wasn’t going to make a living at it! So in 1981 I enrolled in the College of Engineering at the University of Utah and continued to race locally for fun. It was also during this time that I began building wheels. Fast forward to 2014, and with my engineering career winding down and retirement on the horizon I decided to start KB Wheels.
My background as a racer and engineer puts me in a unique position to build high quality yet affordable wheels for mountain, road and gravel bikes. My KB Wheels customers really love the wheels I’ve built for them and many have purchased multiple sets. I also build custom mountain bike wheels for the Auburn Bike Company. My wheels will stand up to any in the industry and they are rolling along in California, New York, Japan and everywhere in between. I would love the opportunity to build the best set of wheels you have ever ridden.
