By my count we laced a total of 5 new wheels, 4 of them dynamo tonight, and Fred got half way through a 20in wheel. There were probably another 3 or 4 wheels repaired. There was also some cross pollination when a couple Tarck bros showed up to rub elbows and drink beers with us. Productive night all around.
Joe, despite going off the reservation and being a general all around pain in the ass, actually got the most traction I think. He transferred spokes from one rim to a replacement and trued it up, laced a second wheel from scratch with Freds help, and trued up a third wheel.
Pro tip – if you’re going to host a wheel building night, it behooves you to center all the stands ahead of time.
