Anybody lace your own wheels?
I'd like to make-up my own set but never did it before.
Does anyone know of a guide or how-to that'd be helpful?

Is it very tough to do?

The talent is in the truing. Plan on that taking a long time at first.

No problem guys--that's what TT is all about. I just printed them off and put them in my bike tech binder so I can take the info out to the garage with me. WR Dave.
