Sorry Phil, Tuesday booked by swmbo for a social event.

Saw lots of foxes in France and a BADGER (little one I have to admit).
Been for a brisk big ring spin round my local National Forest dry and bumpy and not very interesting loop... it is getting better though, be great in about 10 years.
Feel a lot better for it.

Subs it out to someone. Not cheap though. New Mavic rim and plain ss spokes on own hub = £70. Stayed true over 6 months. About 7 days turn round.

how much were the rims ?

coz i've got rims & hubs and not in any real rush for them.
just saves me having to go all the way over to julies cycles in leicester for a sub par service.

don't know :oops: Simply agreed a price built. The shop is run by a couple of old school roadies - worth asking for a price for the wheel build, usually interested and helpful though their expertise is generally related to road bikes.
