Bicycle Mechanics - Wheel Building... again
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I know there are a lot of questions about wheelbuilding so I'll make this quick. If I wanted to practice/have some fun building a wheel, would it be suitable to take apart an old wheel and just try building it together again? Or have the spokes been worn already? Thanks
That should be fine.
However, I wouldn't ride it. The spokes
are probably shot from all the tensioning/detensioning
and minute changes in the head from seating them.

One very good advice Sheldon Brown provides is to take your time. So unless you have an extra bike you can afford to loose for a week or so, you would be better practicing with a spare wheel.
