I think I have always been worried about building my own wheels. Is it as hard as it looks? Do you have to sit under a waterfall wrapped in the hide of a freshly sacrificed oxen for ten hours to cleanse the soul before you start? I have always wanted to try but since I moved to the midlands from the SW, waterfalls (and indeed oxen) are hard to find.

ahhh....that's where you went wrong....... :wink:

seriously though they look like nice wheels to me. 8)

if I can get some rim tape in time I'll give 'em a test at Chicksands on Thursday.

I think your real challenge lies with the second set of wheels you're doing for me :twisted:
