    you would see that stuff he says about HIMSELF is mostly something like: '' I agree pete matthews has a great reputation''
    I was a bit shocked actually, how a grown man could act like this.
    How daft you have to be ? (facepalm)

    Also i was told by senior riders that he states himself as best wheel builder in the WORLD(yeah sure) and bunch of other jokes about him.

    I believe this is not a case of split personality but pure narcissism.

    Chances are it's his son posting - pretty sure he looks after his twitter account / web site etc, but yup, it doesn't look good either way...

    He does lace together a decent wheel and like you, I hear he isn't too modest about it :) That said, I also hear he's a font of knowledge and always up for a conversation.

  • True, he's a top notch wheelbuilder, but from personal experience, just make sure you get the price quoted in writing before you pay him.

    I don't know whom makes his frames, but when I had the paint stripped from mine (professionally done) there was pitting behind the seat tube.

    The frame hadn't even done 1000 miles, and all the riding was done in dry weather. I only got it re-sprayed because I didn't like the colour.

    As far as I'm concerned his reputation is as clean as his shop.
