Now this rear was never going to lace itself so I thought I’d better get on with it. The main reason for me stalling was the stuck freewheel. It didn’t matter what trick I tried it wasn’t coming off unless I killed it.
So I thought I’d try lacing with it still on😬 I’ve done this before on a 50’s standard 27” wheel 3 spoke crossed and with much larger hub flanges, but this was different game, much tighter and it needed a lot of careful easing to get the first & fourth set of spokes on the hub. But I managed it in the end. Tricky work and not something I’m in a rush to repeat!
