One to go.  For some reason I enjoyed lacing the wheel in a sick twisted sort of way.  It took about 3 tries and 3 hours to get it right.  First time, put the spokes in the wrong order.  Second time the pattern was correct but the spacing wasn't so all the spokes where long.  I was like WTF buchannons, then i heard Anders ethereal voice yelling "bullshit, you did it wrong", at which point i realized the spacing wasn't correct.  Third time was a charm.  The rear wheel should go considerably quicker.  The hub still needs an final polish and the inner area painted, then i can lace it.

Stainless spokes and nipples? Did you use any anti seize? If its steel against aluminum,  Anders recommends Nickel antiseize I believe.

Hey Ben.  Yes both are stainless. I chatted up anders during the spring ride and he said he always used a bit of assembly lube when using stainless nipples and spokes because "they will gall like a bastard" if you don't.  Good enough for me, so thats what i did.  Once i get both wheels built and the tires, tubes and rim strips get delivered, I plan on making a trip up to Candia   so he can true and balance them for me.  Apparently I am not equipped to do it myself  Tongue
