All wheelsets built by Dubya will be laced to either Excel or DID rims using Bulldog spokes.

Anderson urged WPS reps to educate dealers on using Dubya's custom wheel builder function on the company's website. The system is a great selling tool and lets customers see the wide range of custom configurations that are possible.

"We made a real commitment when we took over the Talon line," John Anderson said.

Reps are also urged to share the company's Facebook Fan page and its weekly giveaway feature, "Thank Dubya it's Friday." Winners are chosen at random from the list of new fans who Like the FB page.
