I've got a bunch of free time and never made a wheel, mountain bike or bmx. I've found it to be cheaper where i am (canada) to order all of the pieces and then when my parents come in two weeks to have them bring up the parts rather than ordering them here. i'm planning on building a set of wheels on my own, still not posative on parts though. Is building a 48 spoke BMX wheel a wise idea for someone who's never done it before or should I just bite the bullet and get a prefab job or pay someone else to do it.
I've just noticed i can save tremendous money doing it on my own, but of course i won't if i f-it up. And yes I know how to do it, i've watched it done, i've just never even attempted on my own!
