I've decided to give wheelbuilding a go.....i figure by the time i retire i will have mastered it and it'll give me something to do in my old age (i have about 35yrs to do that).
So first question is.......is building your own wheels cheaper? or is it more a personal satisfaction of doing the job yourself.
Second.....Tension meters. my LBS stocks a range....from an $800 DT digital to the Park TM-1. I'm looking at the park because its cheapest. Any reason to go with something else? The guy at the shop while helpful uses the high end one.....but as he said "its a business expense"........so i suspect the top of the line model would be overkill for me.
Any other tips from experienced wheelbuilders are always welcome. thanks in advance guys
