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.
I like to tell stories with words and pictures. A former courier in Eugene, OR, I believe it's possible to be both an advocate for active transport and a fixed-gear hooligan at the same time. Please leave comments or hit me up direct at ahongo at gmail dot com.
