It rides in absolute silence.
The chainline is exact.
It is running a 52x19t (75") gear.
Cost for the completed bike:
$ 20.00 Miyata OneTen road bike (yard sale)
$ 40.00 Basic Wheelbuild-rear
$ .00 Dura Ace lockring (saved $5.95)

The gold anodized Mavic OR10 rim for the build came free with a wheelset bought on eBay last year which provides the front wheel on the bike.
