    There I was yesterday, dreading having to build one, having read all the tales of how difficult they were. Anyway, I cracked on with the mindset that even if it doesn't work at least it's assembled.

    Checked it this evening, and stap me vittles, if it's not within tolerance in all three variables.

    I'll not do that again, so I can keep a perfect track record

    Good effort....I know of a few wheel builders who wont touch them as they are..and I quote "Fookin' shite"
    tho that could have been the quality he was referring to ??

    Good concept, tubeless tyres on a spoked rim, the ability to replace spokes without having to remove the tyre.

    The quality of mine is good, it's not new BMW rubbish.

    Imagine a wheel on a bench, but with fewer spokes.
