The small wheel building thread.
Hi All. I thought it would be useful to have a thread dedicated to building small wheels where hints and tips can be given and questions answered. While there is plenty of information on the net about building wheels its often aimed at full size wheels but small wheels are different animal.
To start things off I have a question about spoke cross patterns. I am considering rebuilding a 349 Bickerton rear wheel on a SA 3 speed hub. Its currently a 2 cross pattern, could I go to a 1 cross pattern and would there be any disadvantages?
