Swift Custom Made Wheels

Brendon Sharrott NZ Elite Mens Cyclocross Champion only uses Swift Wheels

Why choose Swift Wheels? Well, that is aside from the fact that Brendon Sharrott, NZ Elite Mens Cyclocross Champion does? When you order a pair of hand built wheels from us, you receive a custom product made to the highest standards. 

 

We offer a range of wheels to provide value for money, excellent performance and first class aftermarket care. The aim is for these wheels to function for as long as possible. They are serviceable, rather than disposable items.  

Hand built wheels are custom made for you. They are built to suit specific riding conditions, along with factors such as rider weight and aesthetics. Custom made Swift wheels can retain compatibility with older components. They can also maximise the worth of existing components; if a rim is worn but a hub is still in good condition, the hub can be built up into a new set of wheels giving it new life.

A well built wheel will be stronger and more stable: no two wheel components are exactly the same, the components contain discrepancies. Each build needs to be different. A uniform build cannot provide the unique balance of tension required.  Building by hand also allows for each component to be handled and assessed individually, adding another level to quality control.

Advanced lubricants and preparations are used to ensure each wheel performs as well as it can for as long as it can.  Every wheel is pre-stressed intensively to ensure it won't need retensioning after your first ride. If tensions drop, the wheel is re-tensioned and the stressing process is undertaken again. This process is repeated until there is no movement from true.


Our brand of Swift Custom made wheels offers a lifetime guarantee for spoke replacement and retrues*. Wheels are produced to within 0.1mm of lateral trueness unless otherwise stated. That is equivalent to the average size of a grain of sand or the thickness of a human hair. If you you want peace of mind for any reason; you can send your Swift wheels back to our workshop to be checked free of charge*.  

TESTIMONIALS

Speed and professionalism

August 31, 2014

If you need servicing for your pushbike, please consider Get Fixed and the speed and professionalism offered by Simon. Don't pay excess dollars at a bike shop. Use your head and have the work done by someone who really cares for your pride and joy. I gave Simon my Specialized MTB for a "Get Slick" service and "Drive train degrease" and a road bike with a head tube problem and they were both sorted within a few hours. Excellent service and exceptional work at an affordable price way cheaper than a bike shop. Had the MTB well over 10 years without ever doing anything to it so you can imagine the oil, muck and grit caked on it ,but it's like a new bike now. Highly recommend you check out Get Fixed for all your bicycle repair/service needs.

Amazing Service

September 04, 2016

Amazing service, picked up the night before I needed it, took it away and had it back before lunch time. It was a last minute issue and I was dead impressed with the fantastic service and rather cheap cost considering the service. Would highly recommend :-)

Great Experience using Get Fixed

October 20, 2013

Great experience using GetFixed. It worked out brilliantly having the bikes picked up and dropped back - as 2 busy workers with lack of spare time it was ideal to have this service. Awesome to know that we are helping to support a local business run by an enthusiastic and highly capable bike fanatic/engineer. Thanks for finding me brilliant bike lights, I feel safer in the dark and was even happier to know the front one was in top 5 bike lights as rated in D.Post a week later!!
Cheers Simon see you next year.
