Coffs Harbour Monster Trucks

Lacing a DR650 Rim

I've laced a few rims before.

Started with bicycles then on to motorbikes.

Heavier rims are a bit more forgiving.

I'd prefer a motorcycle rim any day.

I worked at a cycle centre for a few years.

I got popular with the triathlon riders back when opposed calipers existed.

Rims have to run straight and true.

Especially on a racing bicycle.

This rims buggered.

Checking the offset before dismantling.

They come apart easy enough.

A bit of WD40 helps.

A pair of vice grips are handy when the spoke gets tighter..

Straight and true. Painted the inner to avoid corrosion. 

Good to go.
