i am a first timer wheel builder .
i have a book ( this one ) and a few wheels laying for reference .
I have several questions , but i'll start with this .
im like merckx i guess , it has to be perfect or forget it .
so with that said .
i have laced up the front rim .but i dont think it's correct -
i started with all the spoke heads on the outside of the flange on the left side on the rim .
i placed the i placed the key spoke to the lef tof the valve stem hole .
then every 4th hole i went clock wise .until those were done .
then i started on the right side of the rim .and the spoke that is on the left of the vale stem hole , that spokes head is on the inside of the flange.
this sint correct is it . the pictures are drawing so no real detail , but if i compare to the other rims i have , one side looks correct and the other side looks correct . as far as spoke placement , but theh heads of the spokes are wrong .
while i am typing this i tihnk i just need to rotate the spoke heads on the left side of the rim .
Oh my i love this stuff-
