Having ordered rims from LightBicycle I am shortly to get to build them up. Having only built with alloy rims before, are there any particular differences in build technique I should be aware of when using carbon rims?

Many thanks

Grease the nipple seats and use aero spokes. It's easier to build with carbon rims because they basically stay round no matter what you do.
