Psimet

The PSIMET Advantage

Rob Curtis, founder/owner/builder says, "The advantage of my wheels is that I consult with you ahead of time. I have been doing this for a long time and I have gained a lot of experience learning what works and does not work. The ultimate goal is to put you on the lightest, strongest, fastest, and most affordable wheels for your particular needs. The fact that each wheel is built by hand, tensioned by hand, and doesn’t leave my shop until it meets my standards is an included bonus."
