Casey Ford, Owner/Operator
I’m a wheel builder certified by DT Swiss at the United Bicycle Institute, and owner of KB Wheels. I’m also a Professional Civil Engineer 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 on the road and in the dirt for fun. It was also during this time that I built my first set of wheels. In 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 makes me uniquely qualified to build personalized performance oriented wheels. KB Wheels customers are very happy with the wheels I’ve built for them and many have purchased multiple sets. My wheels will stand up to any in the industry and they are rolling from Maine to Japan and everywhere in between. I would love the opportunity to build the best set of wheels you have ever ridden.
In 2018 we moved KB Wheels to Yarmouth Maine and, while still building custom wheels, we are now a full service bicycle shop. We offer affordable tune-ups and all the essential products you need to keep riding. We are also building custom gravel and fat bikes with several of our builds featured in the Gallery. Yarmouth and the surrounding communities have been very welcoming and we’re grateful for all the support we’ve received.
