Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Today I dropped off my newly built wheel at the bike shop to have it trued. I went up to the counter and told the guy I'd laced it myself, but wasn't ready to attempt trueing. He said lets look and see if its laced correctly. It was, so that made me feel pretty good. I would actually encourage others to learn how to lace wheels. Its not terribly difficult. I may build my own wheels for my next build, but that's a long ways off yet. The next project that I've got in mind will cost 3 times as much as my current build, and I will need to have a better work space than what I do currently. But lacing this wheel has given me a new sense of accomplishment, despite all the frustration I've dealt with over my recent wheel troubles. I'll be back on the road by Sunday at the latest. I'm very happy.
