I bought a bunch of liquor at the beginning of this pandemic. Might as well.

Favorite drink of the pandemic is the spicy pineapple margarita.

1. Make a Pineapple Sour Mix: 1/2 cup freshly squeezed pineapple juice, and 1/4 cup each lemon juice, lime juice and sugar.
2. Rub the rim of your glass with lime and roll in homemade sriracha salt, garnish with lime and jalapeño wheels, fill glass with crushed ice
3. Fill cocktail shaker halfway with crushed ice. Throw in a couple slices jalapeño. Add 1oz each tequila and Grand Marnier and 2 oz Pineapple Sour Mix. Shake until shaker is frosty.
4. Strain into prepared glass.

Mr H decided he wants a welder for his recent birthday.

Really, what are you going to weld, I ask.

”Plenty of stuff,” he says.

About ~1900g for the set, sans time tape and skewers.

Not light by any means, but they should be solid.

I think I should start building lower spoke count wheels. These 36°ers take so much time to lace and tension.

Cool photo.

That looks delicious.

AG had a set laced by a friend with the valve between spokes that crossed closest to the rim... :twitchy:

Thanks!

The spokes are butted, but it's pretty subtle at 2.0/1.8/2.0 mm. We'll make a judgment about how well they are actually put together once they're underneath my fat ass :lol:

Also, Bah Humbug you're an absolute legend. Thank you so much, again, I can't wait to throw these on my Trek

I only hope they serve you well. And I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say pics are necessary when they're installed! :)

I made a point if placing the hub label one time. If my felliw wheel builders want to think less of ne for it, so be it.

It's shockingly easy to do. About half of mine are that way.

I have taken at least one fully tensioned wheel apart because of that.

There really is no better answer. Nicely done, Mr. H.

Same. Only it was the label and the valve stem hole.

Forget about the hub labels, I'm judging you for your typing. ;)

Wheel building is a mysterious black art to most road weenies. You are now like a minor deity to them.

bampilot06 07-01-20 06:45 AM

How long did it take you to build the set?

Can’t guarantee that won’t happen. :D
