Default Re: wheel building

I've not tried a full lace job but I do all my own trueing. I've gotten pretty good at it and even improved the roundness or a brand new wheel on a Schwinn Jaguar. It came with lumps and I was able to get it better than the way the factory shipped it out. It is a time consuming task but the satisfaction when you're done is well worth it. I use an old fork for front wheels and a home made stand for the rears.
