My name is Mathew Mitchell, 30-something from Staffordshire, UK. Over the last few years I've got more and more into cycling, from the first innocent Sportive events to Audaxes, Go-Races, British Cycling racing and now Time Trials.

    Where did you get your wheels? Also, how long did this take you (roughly)?

    • Hey, thanks for reading. The wheels were an Ebay purchase (http://ebay.eu/1z1aVYo), relatively cheap. They’re definitely not the lightest but I’ve not struggled at all with them so they’ve been worth it.
      All in all, the project took me about 3 months but I could’ve done it much quicker if I wanted to. The slowest process is the painting which took about a month on its own waiting for the right weather and free time.
