So, I've been away for quite a while and have been working hard on a Law degree.
Hope all you dudes are alive and well! :)
Finished my exams a couple of weeks ago and have been sitting around between rides getting bored.
Not been building many wheels for the last couple of years so thought I'd do a couple of pairs for myself.
Did the front this afternoon.....but waiting for the drive side rear spokes to come in the next couple of days to get them finished and get out there to try and wear them out!

An old pair of Circus Monkey hubs I had lying around 32/32h.
Laced radial on the front, 2X both sides on the rear.
Ambrosio Crono F20 rims.
Alpina 2.0/1.7/2.0 black spokes.
DT pro lock brass nipples.
Schwalbe Milano tubulars with tan sidewalls.

Will give it a weigh in the morning, but really happy with a cheap, light front wheel. ;)

Congratulations on getting Your degree ;). Reminds me that I need to dig deeper in my studies instead of constantly browsing WWs ;) let's get to work (and on bike afterwards)

Let me know how such light wheel holds up radially laced ;)

Whoops! Just found the old wheel thread on the forum index.
Could one of the Mods please move this?
Sorry.
