Many Wheels to Build

New rim on commuter rear wheel. New rim on road rear wheel. New wheel for Traveler's Check.

I'm going round and round.

One thing about cracked rims: there's nothing ambiguous. With some mere wobbles you go through that awful period of indecision, nursing it along. Just bust it outright!

Not recommended for front wheels. I knew a guy who had folded up a front wheel in a sprint, or at least that was the story. Can you say "post traumatic stress?" He still sort of raced, but he never really went for it. Can you blame him?

Waiting for the orders to come in is the hardest part. Finding time to do major work on my own bikes is the second hardest part.
