wheels... done


Done. So, the hardest thing about about building wheels after not having done so in a while is remembering how to get started. Making sure that everything is lined up right so that the hub logo lines up with the valve hole in the rim and the spokes go in the right way, I guess you could say I needed a little help.
I did manage to build the rear wheel by myself: Lined everything up properly, stressed it multiple times, dished, round, thread locked the spokes, double checked the tension. I think I can say that I'm ready to build a set all by myself, as long as too much time doesn't go by and I forget everything again.
