Default Re: First Build GT2-A frame [PICS INSIDE]

So i was trying to get my wheels built and had all the materials except the 13/14g butted spokes. Went to a bike shop and the mechanic there was a ****** bag. He made such a big deal about using butted spokes and said he only uses 14g and 13g does not fit in my hubs, I explained to him that the Iram hub has 3 mm holes and the shimano 2.6mm which seemed to piss him off. I then said the bad word and told him that I need the spokes stronger because I was using it on a motorized bicycle. Awwww man!!!! Motorized bicycle what did I just say.

He then went on a rant about how he does not work on motorized bicycles and bicycle wheels are not designed for that purpose. I guess I'm on my own and have to figure out how to measure the wheels and hubs and order my spokes and hen build the wheels.
