Have no fear!
For a long time I was intimidated by the process of wheelbuilding but I finally decided to give it a shot. I thought for sure it would be a lot more difficult than it actually turned out to be. This is primarily due to the fact that a lot of folks talk about it like some magical art that can only be mastered by a few supertalented people.
It's not that hard.
Patience - It took me about 4 hours to finish the front wheel. It was frustrating but, like learning to ride a bike, once I got the hang of it the rest was a snap. The rear wheel only took and hour and a half. Now go build some wheels!
