  1. There isn't one, as far as I could see, so let's start a wheel building thread. (Maybe admins want to pin this?) This is the thread for anyone wanting info on wheel building, for anyone who builds wheels and for all guys who may want to learn this art.
  2. http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd175/Seanf1art/logo_zps61c72476.jpg Hi guys As many of you know I've been working furiously with a couple of partners to get our new shop open a quickly as possible. Our shop prides itself on having the focus on the repairing and maintenance of bicycles. This can be seen in the open plan nature of the workshop with wheelbuilding happening right on the counter. You can only do this by having one of the best mechanics around, Jason Geldenhuys, a full partner in the business. The shop is located across the road from Fratelli right on the Spruit. The rain has delayed the completion of our walkway but we are taking orders for servicing from today. Tel 011 326 1688 It looked like this yesterday afternoon but will look very different by tomorrow. You will be able to walk directly in from the Fratelli parking side in a couple of days. http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd175/Seanf1art/20141118_163408_zpshtgwru7f.jpg My Pyga getting some love http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd175/Seanf1art/20141117_093846_zpsqlwxgwcq.jpg It wasn't the wheel http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd175/Seanf1art/20141117_094235_zpscefdmhee.jpg http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd175/Seanf1art/20141118_085849_zpsbjemjbo2.jpg Someone having an old 5.5 built up http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd175/Seanf1art/20141117_094224_zpsftd7kxut.jpg http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd175/Seanf1art/20141117_094303_zpskqx6uwli.jpg Still a little bare... http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd175/Seanf1art/20141114_164027_zpstdmx7ktv.jpg Just pop in and say howzit.

  3. Any expert wheel builders out there that have an opinion on whether an asymmetric rim will work on the rear of a Scalpel Si? I am mainly wondering if the spoke tension will be symmetric on both sides of the rear wheel. I've had various mixed answers from bike shops. Some say it depends very much on the hub and flange distance, which I am having trouble understanding.
