Big Wheel (re)Build



New spokes for Blaise's 48-inch Kennedy wheel came in last Monday. Here's a little time-lapse from the iMac at the shop in the OP Barn. We relaced all the trailing spokes so there was actually a cross in the pattern, put spoke prep in every nipple, and trued and tensioned it up as best as we could. There was still a pretty bad hop in it because the spokes were made out of questionable steel and kept breaking at the threads at tension.

Rock & Roll

Spent the weekend tying things up and then tearing them apart with the Rock The Bike crew for the Willamette Valley Music fest. I'm trying to catch up on school now, so I'll refer y'all to coverage from We Bike Eugene and Rock The Bike. Also check out their respective flickr streams.
