Wheely Good

Here's my wheels being built by Ciaran. It was a fun evening of screwing spokes in, truing stands, pizza and Grolsch. Massive thanks to him for showing me the dark arts. Its hardly dark but it certainly is laborious and tedious.

I wouldn't have the patience myself.

First wheel has all the spokes in but its all slack and needs loads of tension. The dynamo hub looks awesome against the Mavic Rim.

I had a cat for company whilst most of the tensioning was done.
Last few spokes adjusted and we're and riding home at 12.30 pm. Cold.
