How your wheels are shipped


I ship wheels within Canada. In fact most wheels I build are shipped. Here’s a photo story about packing wheels so you can know what to expect. Wheels get a bad rap in the shipping department but actually wheels are pretty tough. If you think about forces a wheel experiences under your bike, shipping ought to be minor. Sometimes quality problems are blamed on shipping but I think that’s bogus — I’ve fixed enough discount e-commerce wheels that got “hurt” in shipping to know.
