FasterUSA in Murrietta - Anybody used them for WHEELS

California

Found these guys on eBay.  You send them your wheels and for $295 the put on new Excel rims and mail them back...  add $365 for Tagaskos or DID Dirt Stars.  Need spokes add $50...  just need spoke nipples only $25.  Those prices are for BOTH wheels.

Spoke with an Aussie dude named Collin this morning...  seems real knowledgable.

 

Thats not much more than what it would cost me to buy rims and do it myself.

 

 

Anyone know them before I send off my wheels ?  Sounds great if they are legit !

Oh ya...  and part of the service they also bead blast your old hubs clean.

 

They specialize in complete wheel sets too and machine their own billet hubs in house.

 

I am not often so impressed.  :thumbsup:

Collin is a good guy, used to work at Langston's, :thumbsup:

Weird I had to find him on eBay...  I've asked riding buddies many times about a good local wheel man...  always with the shrugged shoulder they are. 

 

Sending him two sets to rebuild next week.  No more 19inch rims on my bikes.

I met him through a mx buddy, he does home service calls too.

Much love has been generated between myself and Collin...  Having him send me his new hubs in complete wheel packages instead of using my old hubs.  He made me a stupid great offer being new designs.  One of the things I really like is that his hubs use all factory bearings, seals and spokes for max compatibility...   unlike other aftermarket hubs such as Talon.  Last bonus is the drive side of the rear wheel uses dual factory bearings for additional strength.

 

I'll post pics and thoughts when they arrive.

whats the diff between excel and takastgo always thought they were the same  :confused:

They are.  Excel makes three rims for after market Nordastem, Taskvidawich & A60.  DID makes Dirt Stars, STX & LTX.  Excel Taskwenches and regular Dirt Stars are same quality.  A60s nd LTXs are about the same.

I see. Didnt know there was a lower end Excel rim than the Takyassho. Never seen anyone else sell them

is it $365 for Takescargo total or $365 extra?

$365 total for both wheels rebuilt with Takasaki rims.  Includes shipping back to you.

 

$445 if you upgrade to A60s.
