Well, my wheels are at the LBS...

got tired of wishing I could ride it and not being able to build new wheels right now i took action!!!

bearings in the hubs are not perfect but they will be greased...

no more lose spokes and the out of round wobble will be taken out...

as well as trued of course...along with new heavier dutier tubes (weight is not an issue)

LBS agrees that at my weight should not be an issue with these rims (Weinmann 700c they are double walled) as long as I don't run over everything and curb hop!

I can't wait... ride report forth coming...

I can put her back together on Thursday...
