wheel building
 
It had been a lot of years since I'd done this but so glad I did. Serious fun for me. They came together really well and I can't wait to have the rest of the bike together and ride them.

Nice, I like the black and white spokes. It looks like a rather non-standard lacing pattern.

Those look great. Laced 2 cross?

Bi-colored spokes are cool. I've built hundreds of wheels over the years. I like to go radial on the non-rotor side of the fronts for fun.

Nice. So do you have a truing stand you use? upside down fork? Do you measure the runout, if so what's a good number (both directions) or do you just eyeball that? Just curious, always wanted to build a wheel one day.

Yea I do. It's the Feedback Sports single arm stand. Works well but I think I should have just ponied up for the Park so I could bolt it to the workbench. I use a through axle adapter from Abbey Bike Works which is awesome because it'll handle 12, 15 and 20mm hubs. I've got a dishing tool to measure the dish but you could make one pretty easily.

I've got to rebuild my road wheels here soon. The nipples are pretty corroded from all the years of being near the ocean and the rims have taken a beating. I'll let you know when I do and you're more than happy to swing by and try lacing them. I'm not a speed demon by any means in the build process. Usually takes me a couple hours per wheel.
