Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

a GOOD diy/how to lace a bike wheel

So i searched for something like this and never was able to find a video tutorial on how to lace a bike wheel. I saw Sheldon's site which was great, and then came across this, it's a great 4 part how to lace a bike wheel (36 spoke) but the 32 spoke is the exact same way just 4 less holes. i figure you guys might like this. This video got me motivated to get a wheel build going with my $30 IRO hubs, not sure what rims im using yet

This is the fashion department of cycling; he forgot to tell you you should be able to read the label on the hub through the valve hole. I didn't bother watching all of it, but undoubtedly he forgot to mention the rim label (should you dare to leave it on) should be on the drive side.
