    I've had good luck with Open Sport rims because of the extra Al. in them. 32 spokes is pushing it for a 260 pound rider plus 20+ pounds for the bike.

    Light and tourer don't usually go together. Carbon bikes normally don't have eyelets for racks and fenders and have short chain stays. What exactly are you trying to do with this horse?

    Over inflate the tire and submerge it in the bathtub. You should be able to see where the problem is. I fill to about 2 inches and rotate thee wheel until the leak shows up.

    I used to clean them in a Ragu bottle with mineral spirits, but the ultrasonic cleaner does so much better that my chain life has more than doubled.

    When I build a wheel I concentrate on getting the radial run-out first while still working on the lateral. I try for .5 mm or less.

    The steel axle indicates an older (and better) model. You should be able to remove a NDS spacer or two to get it close to 130mm.

    A friend has a 1220 and I think that a 28 will fit, but you need to check the clearance. I know that a 26mm tire will fit.
