Honest Steve's Bike Parts and Accessories

Postby OnlyInAJeep » Thu Aug 13, 2009 1:33 pm

I live in Ely and work 2nd shift so that may complicate inspection/transfer, but we can work something out. I work (at Pearson) just off I380, across from the exit 13 truckstop, it wouldn't be a problem to transact there. I plan on being at rest of trail days this year, made most last year (big guy...don't talk much :) ). I'll take Paypal, but would prefer cash. steve@highpowerlinks.com

I'm considering buying the rims. But I don't really have tools to build a wheel. Is there any one good around town? How much would it cost?

Steve at Hall's built my commuter wheels. Bomb proof. My 29er wheels were built by him has well, and I have experienced some problems with my rear wheel. That could be:

1. A bad build
2. A less than svelt rider
3. A combination of the two.

Probably a combination of the two with a strong emphasis of #2.

I have built a few wheels that are proving to be reliable. Its fun so if you want some help building some let me know. I have had some other wheels built by The Broken Spoke in IC that are solid as well. I cant remember price... 50 maybe? Its been my experience that a new rear wheel will need re tensioned after some high torque rides. Otherwise as long as your dish is good and your tensions are fairly even (I usually shoot for 100 Kgf) the wheel build should be solid. Using a 3 cross pattern also helps. Roger Musson has a fantastic pdf manual on wheelbuilding: http://www.wheelpro.co.uk/wheelbuilding/book.php

Jaghouse I remember you saying you built your own, thanks for the link. I have a few links I have saved as well, I particularly like this one, while it doesn't detail the whole process it seems to be really good advice: http://miketechinfo.com/new-tech-wheels-tires.htm

I'm rolling the idea around I will need to see if it will be worth it to me cost-wise, was thinking of getting your standard XT or XTR hubs with Mavic 717 or those Mavic 321's. I would love to justify buying a really nice set of hubs but they're just too expensive.

Sorry to bump an old thread, but I need some rims.

Are those 321's still available?
