Rim/Hub Offset ?

I laced up my rear wheel all loosey goosy and dropped them off at the shop for truing. He says I gotta get the drivetrain in, then line up the hub with tranny sproket and cut spacers based on that. Then determine the rim/hub offset to center the wheel and true it like that.

This guy seems to know his stuff, but it seems bassackwards from everything I've heard. ie -shouldnt ya lace, true, center the wheel, then shim the rest -brakes, sproket- to fit?

Re: Rim/Hub Offset ?

you can do it however you want, his way probobly works for him. i usually measure the offset when i tear the wheel apart so i got it when i relace it only pull them over with the spokes if i have to... cause i cant get it any other way.
