never done this before, i cant find a set of wheels i'd be happy to part my money with also, i dont have the up front cash to buy a full set, so, i'm thinking of slowly building up a set.
ideally, i'd like it to fit in well with my LXm580 groupset, but doing a quick search i cant find LX M580 disc hubs, so, alternatives must be sought.
the wheels would be used on my commuter/xc bike (rigid) 2004 Marin Nail trail. so something reliable, good strong build but with a sensible price tag.
firstly i'd like to get the hubs sorted:Hubs
i'm partial to Shimano hubs, mostly due to their availability second hand and the prices they come up at.
need to be nine speed hub for rear and disc compatible.then Rims
no idea on this. any suggestions welcome.spokes:
even less of an idea on this than the rims
Spokes: £ no idea, never bought them before....
colours: black/grey i'd be happy with. not really doing any bling thing on this bike, so understated, nothing flashy really.
is this a suitable way to approach building a wheelset? or am i going about it fack-to-bront?
any advice/pointers appreciated
