same here. It's a hell of a good deal once you know that you need to go over everything. It's the folks who head out with their trusty 10spd that was never loaded down with 25lbs on the rear wheel or head out with machine made wheels who discover the problems. I got what I thought was a screaming good deal on a custom wheel build done at a cheap labor price and although it was true, hard to make a 26" rhyolite not true, I discovered one squashed nipple, two half rounded and a drive side spoke LOOSER than a non-drive spoke.
