So I have just completed my first wheel build and can happily say the end result is as good as I have had from my LBS..
I made the truing stand out of off cuts I had in the shed and it worked a treat..
If you are thinking about doing a wheel build give it ago it really is worthwhile and to be honest I should have done it years ago
These are the links I used for bits and advice..
cyclebasket.com for spokes and nipples, best prices I could find but highish carriage so get a few spares etc.
Rims and hubs you can find anywhere
I used this to calculate spoke lengh using there data base, If the hub or rim is not in the data base check out
this will tell you everything you need to know, the Leeni site said I needed 292.9mm spokes I did the measurements myself and it came out 293.4 so went with 292mm these where spot on. I was told to always go down to the lower end of the sizing scale...
for build tutorial "very good"
Overall build time was about 40mins plus 15-20mins for truing (Per wheel)
For final truing see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cU2yKPRglaM
I even got the Hub logo lined up with the Valve hole...
A friend who is a Cycle courier has just seen the results and I have a feeling I may well be doing a few more builds in the near future
It really is just a matter of taking your time and following the instructions and you should be fine.. Im far from the hidden monkey leaping dragon fly guru type so that says sommin
Hope someone finds this info useful
