Well I have been doing my own wheels but I still have problems after building them. I dont know if I am just abusing them or I am doing something wrong. Just a hop off a curb seems to bend my wheels?

Yes that is a Inova...best tire I have used for the track. Its got a nice soft compound and is the sticky icky on the track. I run around 70-80psi for the track.

The hookworms work excellent on the track as well, I have made many laps with them and I would use the hookworms or the Inova but I feel the inova is better. But I think they only come in 24"

I find a cross 4 pattern is a lot stiffer set up once built. (its all I use)
That & getting the initial tension correct. Billionair's have spoke touque wrenches...I just gage by a near by rim...changing to a heavyer gage, don't be afraid to up your tension also... hope that helps.

lots of spoke calculators out there to play with.

Thanks for the tire info...I will be riding on Pirrellis most likely.
But am bringing a couple bikes & will prolly have a couple set ups to try.
Been eyeballing the Inovas...hook worms are kinda proven.

Time to destroy the competition on the 2nd but I'm gunning for you in the summer race! LOL

Where does one find a frame like that?

Went to check the oil level in the clutch and I must have over torqued it before. It snapped when I went to take it off but made a quick fix.....
