Thanks! I really don’t know. They seem to have good reviews, and there aren’t too many choices for 650B rims anyway, so there ya go.

I got the front wheel laced, but not tensioned or trued yet. I used Sheldon’s step-by-step, as I have a number of times in the past, with excellent results. This time I’m a little irked though. I expected the valve stem hole to fall between spoke groups, but that didn’t happen.




And I can’t just move the whole pattern over one hole, because the spoke holes are slightly angled towards the hub flanges.

This probably isn’t a big deal, right? Anybody else notice this issue with A23 rims?

Edit: Never mind. I, feeling assured of my ability to lace, completely skipped over Sheldon’s details about the orientation of the second group of spokes. Crap.
