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.
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.
