My first build I finagled my sprocket to a 32 spoke rim. That took a while.
Most of the work is getting that sprocket going true and I learned that a 36 spoke wheel does much better. I actually got this tip from Revo Boy and it makes sense in that just put in a movie in your living room and have that wheel on your lap with that sprocket and just take your sweet time getting it on straight. Everything else to me was gravy work.
All in all I would say about 12 hours and I actually did rush it using a sledge hammer to get that front tube less fat man that was fun.
It seems like so long ago.
