tried to search and came up with nothing useful. Which probably means I'm inept at searching. Any whoo, I'm very frustrated with my rear wheel. To start I built my bike about 6 years ago. I laced the wheels and all. They were my first set to lace from scratch. I was impressed that the rear lasted my 6 years before I had to replace it due to a flat spot. I replaced both front and rear with matching ambrosio nojo rims I was able to get a super deal on. With in 5 miles of riding I have a flat spot and the pinned seam has expanded considerably. I used the same spokes and nipples for the second time building these wheels. Would that have anything to do with my troubles? Since I've built the wheel I've heard you should replace your spokes and nipples every time you build a new wheel. Is this true?
Any suggestions for a good rear wheel for a hard tail mountain bike with rim brakes?
