Show-off! Very nice; saw those cranks in person at the shop the other night and they are a thing of beauty.

If you notice, it looks like there are two rh levers, but the one in front is the left, upside down. They are actually swapable, but the adjuster is only on one side.. I think you can just take it out and flip it over.

3x is a good idea with disc brakes, due to the braking forces being transmitted through the hub to the wheel.

Yeah, radial would seem scary for discs, although I have no experience with this. Every wheel I have ever built I just stayed safe with tried and true three cross.

By the way, mcoine, excellent choice on parts. Nice on the gold nipples.

You dog.......

3X is a good idea on any wheel.

Looks great.

Anyone know if those levers will fit Juicy Sevens and if so where you can get them?

I dont see any reason why they wont - however take that humbly, i dont know too much about the higher end Avids. Shout out to SRAM/Avid for the lever blades, i know that.
