I’ve got a pair of Mavic rims on LX-M550 hubs laying around. They’ve got a Specialized sticker on them. What to do with that…?

I found a black Shimano XT front hub that matches the wholes in the rims… Could I build a wheel set on my own? I could try! But wait… I’ve to find a matching rear hub first. Black Shimano XT off course…. At that time I did not know that it would take me almost one year to find the matching rear hub. But finally one shows up on Ebay… The wheelbuilding can now begin…

After one evening figuring out how the spokes pattern works out… the wheels are now finished! Now I can make plans for the rest of the bike…
