I learned of NEXT from my mechanic. He swore they were the “best wheels” so I looked into it. Jerry is super responsive. He texted me several times regarding various items such as upgrading the hubs to i9, asking about tires etc. the time between purchase and delivery was probably 10 days - for a hand built wheel I think that’s pretty darn good. The wheels are flawless. The build is great. The rider has put less than 500 miles on the set but the wheels complete the new bike - Bianchi Ininito CV Disc.
The Quick wheel set has been my go-to for road racing and criteriums for the last few seasons. I've always been a fan of wheels that spin up fast and feel natural through corners. These wheels don't get blown around on the windy days and just feel right. I've raced them across the world, cobbles included, and never had any issues. They're awesome. If you're looking for a lightweight wheel set with some added aerodynamic benefits that won't drain your wallet look no further.
While Jerry's technical expertise is the underpinning of most of his renown, what's really exceptional about the wheels he builds comes from his ability to match a rider to a wheel model. Jerry is every bit the wheel whispering character you'd expect from an engineer owning a one-man whee building l shop. Where that translates into small tweaks and additions - hub selection, spoke number - it means more than a customized set of wheels: the wheels I have are always true, always lively and they offer a type of balanced foundation to my bike that makes riding better. I can't recommend Jerry & NEXT highly enough.
