I have a set of DT240s in Enve wheels, I don't want to bring them just anywhere, hoping somebody can recommend a good shop or wheel builder in the Seattle area?

If you don't mind a trip south, these guys built some wheels for me and did a great job.

Wright Bros in Fremont too.

Not familiar with that particular wheelset so these shops may or may not be good options.

I've been going to these guys for years.  Very competent and reasonable.   I don't know about your specific wheel, but a quick call would tell you.  ~z

DIY

Also if you are considering DIY but don't have many tools -- Wright Bros Cycles mentioned earlier has workspace for people to do DIY work on their bikes -- with parts to buy as needed. 

I used that shop in the '80s when I lived in Ballard and it was great -- they are still there -- must be doing something right.

Thanks two everybody who responded!  Two votes for the same shop, and I live near them.

Also thanks for the DIY video Randito!  I've never done it before and these wheels are too expensive to be my first time, but I have a set of HEDs for beating up on really rough roads and trails, they would be perfect to learn on.  Their hubs never rolled as smoothly and I wonder if replacing the internals could fix that.

I got a message saying servicing your own hubs is fun in a strange way.
