Did you find out what the wheel dishing stick was for then ? Stress relieving the spokes etc etc
Maybe some people think its better to see the hub logos through the valve hole !!!!!!!
And whats that all about not being able to get the valve cap off FFS.
Hey Stu now its your turn for the knights of the wheel building niche.mboySubscriber
Is that the 20mm or 24mm CK front?
Same hub, different axle/fittings. Can convert either into the other just like you can a Hope Pro 2 between QR and 20mm!
Half in the closset/half out the closset.
This IS Sheldon we are talking about. Come on, everybody know’s he’s a full on gayer, he just can’t even admit it to himself, hence all the halfway house stuff, including a CX bike built up with lightweight roadie parts! 😉Posted 9 years agomboySubscriber

Hang on. Not so fast Sheld……
So you laced and trued a pair of wheels. Great, well done, but ride them for a month or so then tell us again.
Any fool can build a pair of wheels. It’s whether they stay true, and do the job that counts.
It’s alright stratobiker, Sheldon’s a “Ginger Beer” by day, I’m sure he managed ok 😉Posted 9 years agoSinglespeedpunkMember

Bit like “pre op tranny p0rn” 🙂
Build was pretty good, a little up-and-down but not too much for a first build. Spoke tension was a little low but again that comes with practice. Oiling the spoke threads would be a good option next time to reduce wind-up and ease the tensioning.

If you mess it up, it wont make the hub and rim useless*. You just undo it and have another go, best way of learning. Use whatever bits you want IMO.
*Well you could possibly (remotely) do something horrendous but even then I doubt you’d break the flange or rip out an eyelet or something terminal.Posted 9 years ago
