    Wheel building with a dynohub

    Hello All, Im currently attempting my first wheel build. However, after removing the old spokes from the wheel i noticed they were 2 different lengths. I dont recall if the shorter spokes came from the large flange side or the smaller side. Can someone point me in the right direction. Many thanks 😊

    Need a new rear wheel

    The rear wheel on my Triban has finally given up the ghost and so I'm on the lookout for a replacement. I'm quite heavy (about 100kg) so I need something robust that will take a few potholes. However, I don't have the money for custom build. Can anyone recommend a factory wheel with a high spoke...

    EU wheel - ? !

    Had some new rims built for one of the GLW's bikes and as I was reassembling them, I noted that the hubs are Taiwanese, the rims Italian, the spokes British, the rim tapes French and the tyres German. ^_^ Not surprised that cycle dealers are having supply issues - ! :laugh:

    Is it ok to fit QR wheel skewers to a folding bike?

    I've got a Raleigh Evo 2 folder which has big chunky nuts holding the wheels on. Is there any technical reason peculiar to folding bikes why I shouldn't be able to replace these with QR skewers? TIA

    Rear wheel "ticking" noise

    I'm getting an annoying tick from the rear wheel, which sounds like a spoke being pinged. I had this on another bike, and solved it by putting a drop of oil on the spoke cross overs, but I've tried that to no avail. It only happens under load, not on the stand, and is exactly once per...

    I’ve got a pair of 2015 (?) Kinesis Crosslight CX disc wheels which need rebuilding - keep breaking spokes, alum nipples are seized. The rims and hubs are ok. I’m new to wheelbuilding but keen to have a go. Easy enough to measure the spokes and source new ones but I’m curious to know where...

    Some very fine wheel truing made easy?

    Not recommended, but watched this guy fixing a bent rim on Utube, any one know a wheel builder that could perhaps use such a method? View: https://www.facebook.com/cyclOware/videos/2725308624461341/UzpfSTEwMDAwNDA5NTExMTY4NjpWSzozMjk5MDc3MjUzNDY5NzM0/
