New wheel.

I picked up the parts to build my new front wheel today.

G-Sport Homer.
DT Spokes.
Odyssey Hazard.
All black.

I'll probably lace it up sometime this week.

About 3/4 done.


I started last night around 4:00am, stopped at 5:00am when I was tired and confused. I think I might just tear it all apart and start again. It's a 4X pattern.

This one was 4X on one side and 3X on the other side and I couldn't figure it out, so I just tore it apart and I'm going to take another go at it in a bit.

Spokes weren't reaching far enough to go 4X.

Finished it a few hours ago, I ended up tearing it all apart and redoing it. It went together fine afterwards, I was most likely just to tired to care when I did it last night and tossed it together. Tomorrow I'll stop by the shop and give it the final tensioning and trueing on the stand (I don't even have a spoke wrench that fits)



And ya, it's 4X. And my back wheel is only 3X .

That wheel is a beast. If you destroy that wheel, you should be slain.

Sun street lights are fine rims. Mine have held up fine. no flat spots and still run perfectly true. As long as you maintain your wheels they will last.

I've had two broken hands, and two failed front hubs.

So I kinda went for overkill on the front hub.
