Do You Know How to Build a Wheel? - Pinkbike Poll
@zoobab2: just pay the ~$12 for it. support the writer, he continually updates it (it's on version 7 or so now, that's an old version)

Do You Know How to Build a Wheel? - Pinkbike Poll
@e-fro: yep, i haven't put that all together in my head (and i doubt i ever will, since i just don't build enough wheels). my wheel builds will probably take 3+ hours for the rest of my life. but i was shocked at how much more proficient I became between build #1 and build #5 - things became much, much more intuitive.

the park one seems to be the best cross between build quality and cost for an amateur builder

DT Swiss XM 481 are 30mm internal, and come in 28H. i have 3 of these rims across 2 different bikes and have zero complaints about them

Do You Know How to Build a Wheel? - Pinkbike Poll
nah, literally the first wheel i built is still holding up. musson's pdf, if you absorb the whole thing will make you into a competent wheel builder. the difference between a master and and amateur like me isn't the quality of the wheel build (or at least, not enough to matter), it's the speed at which they can do it. my builds take >3 hours - one wheel is a full night for me. a really good builder can do it in like 1/4 the time.

Yep, just built up a set of DT Swiss wheels with 350 hubs for $400. Starbike's prices on DT Swiss components are insane - only downside is their slow shipping. The prebuilt wheelset (with 240 hubs, admittedly) would be $1200. I'll skip on 50g less weight in the hubs where it matters least to save $800, thank you.

maybe try a very weak loctite, like the purple 222?
