So i've been kind of looking for a new wheelset and am running into some problems:
1.) I don't have the money right now
2.) The wheels that appeal to me, in the rare event that i can find them, are rather expensive
3.) I'm finding it very difficult to find exactly what i want
What i want isn't all that difficult i don't think:
1.) Black themed wheel
2.) Fairly light (1400-1600, though certainly would be willing to take less)
3.) Medium spoke count (16/20 is fine...less would be cool)
4.) 30-40mm rim
Am i asking for too much?
So, what i'm left with is some time to raise money to buy these rims which i think might give me some time to figure out how to make my own.
Why would i want to do that?
1.) It would be fun as hell
2.) Could be a lucrative side project of sorts (if it isn't, it would be fun as hell)
3.) Seems it would be cheaper
4.) Would allow me to know how to fix my own wheels when they break
5.) I would get what i want
6.) Satisfaction to the T
I'll buy a book, and can slowly acquire the needed tools. Anyone have any preferences or suggestions about how to learn?
