Hubs are gonna take 2 weeks from King... guess they're pretty backed up from the Holidays. Dang.

Rims and spokes will be here tomorrow... guess I can stare at those for awhile.

I've heard that Stan himself handcrafts and powdercoats every rim in his attic. Seems logical. Who knows, I'm sure they will work just fine, that's all I want them to do!

Sounds like its going to be a nice wheel build! I was hooked aftr building my first set. For me it was a very enjoyable experience and it was rewarding to take my time, and ride them hard for 2 seasons to find them requiring minimal, if any adjustments.

Did you have to buy 3 full boxes of spokes for one wheelset !?

Unfortunately, Yes. Hopefully I will only need two of the sizes.

Hubs came in today!





I got the front one done today. Rear is laced, just needs to be dished/tensioned/trued... hopefully done tomorrow if I have time.

More photos when tires are mounted!

Right around 1700g. I'm using the oversized front hub and brass nipples.
