Ouch, and double ouch. Actually I have too many bikes to ride anyhow and was looking for a learning experience. I’ve never rebuilt a wheel, and the gearing choices on this bike with the helio seemed pretty good and that concave weinmann still belongs there so I’m ready for the mis adventure. Seriously though, I wouldn’t put more than 100 miles a year on it unless I really liked this bike, so learning and then trying it in stock form might be fun.

And thanks Dave, but I think I may be fine with that hub you sent. My original main purpose was to get that weinmann back on there and rebuilding the heliocomatic seemed like another new experience, so I don’t really need a whole wheel. As wiser folks say, I am probably wasting my time and energy, but I’ve done worse.
