Wheelcraft - specialist bicycle wheel builder

Big Al's Wheelcraft

Wheelcraft is a specialist handbuilt wheel builder and bicycle shop. Alastair Gow has been running Wheelcraft and hand building world famous wheels and wheelsets for longer than he cares to remember - without him, the wheels of cyclists from around the world would be, well, less round.

Wheel Building

Treat your bike (and your wheels) to a true-up that will improve the efficiency and comfort of your cycle. Or order a whole new wheelset; built by hand, laced-up with the highest quality spokes and custom built to suit your weight and riding style.

Big Al hand-builds wheels to the tiniest of margins (typically less than a 'baw hair', or 0.5mm to folks from outside of Scotland) and always combines the best components for the job.

Bike Spares and Repairs

The resident mechanics can repair, modify and tune the rest of your bike too - they're champion bicycle mechanics with a tool for every job.

Wheelcraft stocks a wide range of all the best bike bits (not just spokes, hubs and nipples) including brands like; Mavic, Hope, Shimano, Campagnolo, Sunn and many more.

Big Al also has an uncanny knack of finding the most ridiculously old and specialised parts and spares; so if you're looking for something out of the ordinary, come and have a rummage in the Wheelcraft Emporium!
