Earlier I finished up a front wheel for a cyclocross build (with some random vintage parts thrown in). Waiting on spokes so I can do the rear. XT non disc hubs to Campy Omega V rims (vintage!) I have had for quite a while. I haven't built a wheel in a few years and I ran in to a few snags, had to relace um...more than once but once I was done it felt awesome. I had forgotten how how enjoyable it is. So much so that I snagged an NOS pair of Ambrosio Formula 20 rims to build up a little latter.
That got me thinking what are some of the more exotic wheel builds you done or seen? Looking for vintage tubular rims has my mind racing. I know there were quite a few sub 300g rims out there and I am just wondering what other crazy or otherwise interesting stuff people have kicking around. Or just story in general. I guess I really just wanted to start a general thread about wheelbuilding... Discuss.
