So im thinking of building a wheel.
I have never built a wheel so this is what i thought:
i'd buy a hub, rim, spokes, spoke wrench, then just follow sheldon brown's wheel building guide. of course since it would be my first wheel, it wouldn't be true (i'd probably be pretty ****ed up), so i'd just take it to the LBS to get it trued saying i crashed it lol - $10 labor?
Or is that more expensive and hassle than just going to LBS with a hub and picking out a rim and telling them to build it for me - $30 labor?
could the first option be potentially dangerous?
Straying off topic, im confused about redishing a wheel where the spokes on one side are tighter than the other. does that only apply with regular wheels converted to FG and not track wheels?
so if i were to build up a reliable fixie, i'd save trouble by simply getting track wheels correct? rahter than a conversion which i'd have to bring to LBS to dish and true.
Geez this is confusing, is there a guide or tutorial on the internet that tells you how to convert to a FG with pictures/diagrams? I really need pictures and sheldon brown's site doesn't explain it enuff for me.
