Spring, did LB build your wheels with no spoke holes in the tire bed? Are the nipples regular nipples? What do you do if you need to replace a spoke? I don't understand how this is possible with standard nipples unless they put an extra layer of carbon on after building them. Magnets? Aluminum is not ferromagnetic so I don't see how this would help. I am planning on building up some LB rims myself and would love to know how to do it without drilling through the tire bed.
It's a pretty common practice. Regular nipples.
Here's a video to help you figure out how it's done:http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... x3rs#t=210

Haha..cool. But I didnt know those aluminum Fulcrums were "high-end" racing wheels like the outdated video suggests.
Cool technique, simplest of solutions sometimes.
What gets me a tad pissed is I bought a set of 40mm Hongfu aero rims. Then not long after, light came out with their 45mm, which I prefer. Yet, even with the 5mm added depth and no holes drilled, they are the same weight as my Hongfu.
