Wheel Building for the Surly Custom Build

Big thanks to Simon and Nick for showing me
how to assemble my own wheels. All I did was the
lacing as I (sensibly) wasn´t trusted with the
strengthening bit, as it´s a bit of a dark art.

The hub is the Sturmey
Archer 3 speed, the rims
are Mavic Open Pro.
There are 36 spokes on
each wheel and lacing
them was very satisfying!

One rear wheel, before
thetricky bit, making
it rigid and true.
