Hello all , im new to the board.

Building up a really nice Diamant CX frame made in Belgium that I bought from mr Hilary Stone.

Im taking the easy road and will build it up as a fixed gear for some small races here in Stockholm Sweden.

Still waiting for a matching front wheel and some smaller bits to end this build.

The scene in sweden is not big but not really small either.

Im not quite sure about the gearing of right now, probably
something around 19/46.
Mostly because thats the smallest chainring I got for my old
Sugino Mighty 151bcd crankset.

Got the front wheel today but I was quite surprised when I opened the box and found that the spokes where "bent" in some crazy weavy style.

So It will work for now but Im on the hunt for a front Maillard team 700 front hub and a Mavic Open 4 CD rim in NOS condition.

This is how it looks like for now.

I recall seeing a wheel built with similar spokes in BikeFix (I think) in London in the early nineties. I don't remember the manufacturer, but I do remember being shocked by the price.
