  1. Guide for lacing deep carbon rims--where can I get one?

    If you watch this video, starting about time 1:00 the woman uses a metal tube that slides onto the end of the nipple to catch the spoke and guide it to the nipple.

    As far as I'm concerned, it's...

    Avoiding the inconvenience of a flat tire is more important to me than the price of a new tire.
  5. Shimano brand hub--replacing 8,9,10 freehub with 11-speed freehub?

    As far as I know, virtually all of the Shimano 8,9,10 freehub bodies are interchangeable--unscrew the freehub body from the hub and screw another one in.

    Is it possible to remove an 8,9,10...

  7. Bicycle wheelbuilders also doing spoked motorcycle wheels?

    Guy from a custom motorcycle shop contacted me over the weekend--asked if I'd be interested in doing MC wheels also.

    Googled a bit--need a more robust truing stand, dedicated torque wrench for...

    I had a wheelbuild customer a couple of weeks ago who procured his own spokes and nipples. Told me the nipples were stainless steel. I doubted. I weighed them on my jeweler's scale and compared...

    My TM-1 reads high when I first place it onto the spoke. What I have to do is place it onto the spoke, release the squeeze handles, and then rap the Tm-1 sharply with my fingertip a couple of times...

    If you have relatively few miles on a wheelset built by a reputable local person, you owe it to yourself and to him to bring this situation to his attention. Something has clearly gone amiss (awry?).

    I just use the wooden skewers and sharpen the tips like a pencil every so often when they get blunted or oily. What's the point of the pin vise?

    Thanks for the idea--I'll investigate further.

    Also, I'd be interested in hearing what other posters have to say about the idea.

    How big is the potential market for something like this? ...

    Thanks for the tip on the 3-in-one Bike Maintenance Spray. Says it can be used on the wood and glass parts of my bike--I've been looking all over for something like this .. . . .

    I don't remember ever being given a choice about length of threaded area when purchasing nipples. Also my mind is boggled at the thought of removing threads from nipples--like how one would do it? ...

    This sounds like a great idea--I've just been counting how many revolutions I turn the crank. If you keep cranking after the spacer has halted forward movement of the roller heads, do they strip the...

    Well, it's not finished. Once completed, the wood slider piece will be anchored in place by the crossbar held by the bolts-with-wingnuts. Holes in 2x4's not drilled yet. So all I have to do is...

    Good idea. I've stopped being concerned about wearing out the cutting heads--I'm just setting aside $10 from each wheel build into a "tool replacement fund".

  22. Ideal length of threaded area on spokes?

    Doing a survey of my pre-threaded spokes on hand, I notice that the length of the threaded area varies a bit.

    Since I will be threading my own and I can make the length of the threaded area any...
