I have a rear wheel that cracked in several places, the wheel only had about 1500 miles. I know it was a spoke tension related problem. So that is not where my question is headed. Obviously the rim is trash. The hub is a Shimano RSX, not really good but OK. The cracked rim was a Mavic CXP 21. I am thinking about buying rim and attempting to rebuild the wheel myself. Mostly so I have wheel for when the bike is on the wind trainer. I know I will have to buy a rim, it has been suggested that I do not reuse the spokes. I can buy a cheap wheel on the net for aroud $70 that will suit my needs. To rebuild this one I guess I will need a truing stand and dishing tool, those will cost more than the wheel. Straight up it does not seem like a cost effective solution to rebuild, but I was hopeing it would be interesting and fun. Am I thinking straight on this one or is this going to turn out to be a pain in the @$$ that I do not want to deal with.
