Wheels are really not all that difficult-but too someone who's never done it before-I'd take some tutorials in what not to do fairly seriously-they're your f'ing wheels!!!

I've seen many a soul 'build' a wheel that had nowhere near the amount of tension on the spokes, and a lot of time was wasted in doing a 'how hard can it be' type of chore. Have someone do it for you, keeping close attention to what they do, and how they procure the finishing-taking tips before you do your first one-

Like I said-it's not that difficult-neither is a tow truck scraping you remains off the highway after the easy build became an easier wreck in a corner.


***NOT MEANING TO DETER, BY ANY MEANS-I CHARGE $50 TO USUALLY UNLACE AND REBUILD A WHEEL WITH NO EXTRA SERVICES-IT'S SHOULDN'T BE MORE THAN TWICE THAT IN MOST AREAS-CHEAP INSURANCE........SORRY, WISH I WAS CLOSER, BE HAPPY TO HELP YOU OUT.

If you have a local dirt-bike shop, try them. They lace lots of wheels and tend to be quite reasonable.
