Re: wheel builder

Why not just do it yourself?  Something very satisfying about looking at wheels that you built yourself... Or at least I think so.  Lots of great tutorials out there.


I can't understand why anyone would want an old, scratched up, dirty, dusty bike, when you could go and buy a brand new shiny one.

+1.  It takes a lot of work the first time but after that it gets easier.

Once you release the tension on the spoke they will not be true anymore.  And it is super hard just to do one spoke at a time.   Spokes are rather cheap, Porkchopbmx.com  Justin has spokes for $25 each.  Building is hard at first but you will get the hang of it real quick.


Built to ride. What good is a bike if you dont ride it, no matter how nice or rare if you have it RIDE IT!
NOS is not once mounted or show built. NOS is never mounted or built!
