First Wheel Build

This is the first wheelset I built on my own. The rear was done a few weeks ago, and I finally found the time to lace up the front. Haven't ridden them yet, but I'm glad I've finally done it. For people that work on their own bikes, knowing how to build up a wheelset is a big step.

With the help of my crack photographer, we thought I would share some of my work...

First a self portrait of the crack photographer:


Next, the aspiring wheel builder:



Finally, some artsy shots of the wheel itself. A Campy hub laced to a Velocity Deep V wheel with Black double butted DT Swiss spokes and red anodized nipples. 32 hole, laced 3x for those that are interested...






I'll snap some pics when I get them mounted. Hopefully they don't implode!
