A stand is undeniably faster and more accurate than doing it in your frame. Your tire having pressure in it even changes the outcome.
This^^ when building newer 11 speed road wheels you have to dish it way to one side or it goes off centre when you inflate tire.

I have some LB 38mm hookless am/dh rims in the mail, planning on trying them tubeless with ikons. I have the 650b hookless ones on my dh bike and they have worked really well for not burping air.

Also tried mavic 823s in the past, at lower pressures they would burp if landing under or over rotated. Same with spank subrosas and stans arch rims.

Is the locojoy downtube still cut and welded into the curve or are you using a pipe bender?

Well at least they built a bike that's not hard on the eyes and that might ride decently well. Though it's scary. Yo Babah give Dustin one of those and if he can't break it, no one can.

Edit: is it just me or does it look kinda slack? I remember their other bikes being waaaay too steep.
