I might....disking it for disc brakes is what I am not good at.
Build your wheel:
bring it to the shop and pay them to tension if you feel uncomfortable.
Depends on the spokes. I9 spokes and some Sapim spokes are pricy. Regular spokes not so much. What spokes are you looking for?LBS told me today that spokes are getting harder to get. To relace a wheel they charge 25 bucks per wheel which is normal but 4 dollars a spoke. Evidently they think this is the new lumber inflation.
$25 to lace and true? $4 is really high for a standard double butted spoke but $25 to build a wheel is ridiculously cheap.
Agree, $25 is a bonkers price by enthusiast areas (so, bigger cities/riding areas) $50-75 is more normal.I buy spoke blanks because I have a spoke making machine, I still only charge $1 a piece- and I doubt that spokes are THAT hard to come by. However I charge $50 to lace up a wheel because it takes so much time and it's hard to help customers or answer the phone while doing it... so $25 sounds like a great deal.
