    I ordered my parts for my new wheelset last week and they came in Thirsday. They owner of my LBS works as a woodshop teacher at my school, while his son now runs the shop. Anyways he brought the parts in Friday and i got out of study hall and went to his woodshop and he taught me and a friend how to lace up a wheel. It was cool making my own wheelset, even though it took us and hour and a half. Im not gonna have it till Monday because he had to take it back to the bike shop to tension it and true it. Anyways heres the specs... -24" Alex DX-32, black, 36 hole-Shimano XT hub, black, 36 hole-Black spokes. To top it off is a Maxxis Highroller 2.5 tire. I cant wait till Monday.

    Nice choice, and it's always good to know how to do it yourself.
