    good website/resource for mechanics, primarily wheel building?

    ive seen some good stuff here-there. sheldon brown got me through my first year of building up bikes. but i have always bought prebuilt wheels, and i was wondering if there are any really good sites encompassing wheelbuilding. anybody got any suggestions?

    Mike T's site http://miketechinfo.com/new-tech-wheels-tires.htm is good stuff and links to Roger Musson's as well, can't go wrong between them. Sheldon Brown's wheelbuilding info is very good, too...

    Depending on what you're looking for, I found Brandt's book to be a great guide for figuring out what I wanted to build and how to do it. Not a website, but I borrowed it from a library (free) and, after reading it, photocopied a few pages (cheap) though I haven't been able to find where I stashed them lately.
