....and don't forget to explain that it's very complicated. ;)

Once you have the correct size spokes, the complications disappear. :D

Just don't tell people that :D
Then you're no longer a super human.

Oooh, new wheels are much faster than the old ones. Might just be psychological. I don't care. I blew the doors off of a couple PR's today. :)

That tape .... is great! More sticky than Roval, no residue left behind. I just setup one wheel with it, two layers seem to be the tits. Thanks again Marps!

Is it now I have to be a killjoy, and point out that 3M/Stans tape is pretty much the same, just cheaper (if bought as 3M that is)? :D

The 3M cannot be easily obtained unless purchased in large quantities. I paid $4 for a roll of 36 yards x .75", I can live with that. :)

Curious about this 3M tape.
Is it their PTFE 5841, and if so where did you get it? Only finding it listed by the case.

My apologies, I was talking about the Kapton tape that Marpilli used for his build. It works pretty well for tubeless, it is fairly inexpensive and you do not have to buy a full case.

My mistake. Stans tape is Tesa 4289.
Comes in rolls of 66 meters, for $7.

Industrial supply stores, and office supply stores.
It's officially made for strapping bundles.

Probably have ~150 miles on the wheelset. Lots of road, paved trail, some bumpy sidewalk, and a few grassy field crossings. :)

Found a small blip outside (barely outside of my 0.5mm target) and was an easy fix. Still giddy with my new wheelset.

Hand built and well de-stressed wheels will last you forever.

This is my experience as well.
Wheels that dies, are usually either poorly built (most wheels today), or have been seriously abused.

Once you've gotten used to good quality wheels, it's gonna be hard to go back. ;)

It's not so much a matter of "nuts", but rather loads of patience, and a bare minimum of mental activity.
No reason to fear it, anybody can build a wheel, if they take the time it takes.
I've taught a guy to build wheels, who had no previous experience in that regard, over the course of like a month.
Now he is real happy that he can build his own wheels.

spinnorama, thank you!

Like Magura said, loads of patients (and plenty of time) will help out. I'm contemplating building up another wheelset for my new bike. Seriously trying to talk myself out of it. Not having much success so far... ;)
