    Hub logo through valve hole

    Any wheelbuilders here like to line up the logos on hubs so they're visible through the valve hole when the spokes are tensioned? Feels pretty awesome right?

    Thats one way to tell you have a wheelbuilder that pays attention to details.

    You also have to be able to read the logo while sitting on the bike.

    I like to drill a hole through the tube and tire too so that you can still read the hub label through the stem hole after mounting tires. Otherwise, you can only get a side view around the spokes.
