Ah... trying to stretch my skill set huh? I've never laced or unlaced a rim and these are straight, front and rear... I do want to attempt it at some point but not on these.Why not take the rim off? It would be far less work for stripping and painting.
I gotta Re-lace my first set with this build also.I think I'll try the front first, it needs stripped too, and no dish.
sweet trick!You can do it, I've seen your other work.
Here's a trick to make it simple: Tie all of the spokes together ....
I used this technique with 1/2" masking tape when I had to unlace and relace the Electra wheelsets that I had to that the rim colors would match. It really made it a breeze.You can do it, I've seen your other work.
Here's a trick to make it simple: Tie all of the spokes together where they cross with wire or string, mark the spokes on either side of the tube hole if you want to go back exactly as it came out, then remove all of the nipples and take it apart. When you get it ready to go back together, all of the spokes will be in the same position and you don't have to worry about the pattern.
Well if I'm ever going to build that bronco bike, I'm going to have to be able to lace. I'm also finding it hard to source the wheel I really want sometimes. So I'm going to have to build them.Glad you are trying it Carl!
I put it off for many years and only recently tried it, I really love doing it now and will be testing my skills when it comes time for the Klunker build off this time next year, already ordered the fat spokes from Ind_Chuckz!
