Built up a set of wheels with what seems to be a fairly common combination of parts within the RBR crowd. DT 240s hubs, Kinlin xr270 rims, and sapim cxray spokes. I’m guessing I have built 20 to 30 wheels over the years and this set came out significantly better. Supper round and even/higher tensions.

So big thanks to everyone who helped answer my questions and point me in new directions.

Particularly: Ligero and rruff for there willingness to help out a weekend hack. Used your advice on spoke target tensions and found the parts at alchemy.

Mike T. – used your entire spoke “pre-stressing and wind up relieving” techniques. I loved the order and “structure” of your methods. Not a single peep from the wheels or need to touch up.

yep - your red nips would be great. errrrrrrr

Anyway, I went really simple so they could be used on a couple of bikes one red and one blue.

Do it.

For me wheel building is one of the most satisfying things I know to do. I am a bit OCD and wheel building is good medicine. All the little bits combine to make a really cool structure.
