Sorry guys but if the wheel is built and tensioned properly there should be no reason to ride it and then re-tension it.
Build loads of wheels especially for cyclo cross and never have them back to be retioned..
Just built a pair of GL330's, super lite and ride lovely, done over 500 miles on them and never needed to touch them.
Hubs Ritchey 28/32 from China £9
Rims Mavic GL330 tubular from e bay £30
60 spokes DB S/steel 20p each - £12 Cycle Basket South Wales..
I do not use a gauge either, just experience I guess...
Hi, there Orbeas. A bit of topic I know, and sorry for hi jacking the thread, but I was just wondering what you would charge to rebuild a pair of wheels?
Shimano 105 hubs, 36 spoke wienmann rims. Just need the spokes plus labour. Just after an idea of a reasonable price to pay.
