Wheel Build Timelapse


It's almost bike season again which means that hopefully I'll have the motivation to put up more bike related content.

To get the year started off I made a time lapse of building a new wheel for my friend Alex.

The build was a Hope single speed hub, on a Mavic 721, DT Competition spokes, brass nipples, and Wheelsmith spoke prep.

Z3B - how long?

haha, nipples ;) ...so how long did this actually take?

Blair - Nipples

I use brass nipples because they are way stiffer than aluminum ones. You can really twist on them and not worry about them breaking..... wait that wasn't your question... it took about an hour.
