    I just went in "settings" and it shows my attachments are "in progress". Apparently they are still loading.

    You have to post the photo at a hosting site like imgur and then link to it.
    actually that's not correct. RBR offers the alternative of uploading the pic directly.

    OP just click on the image icon, choose "from computer" and upload.

    They should upload in a matter of seconds. If they are too massive there might be a problem?

    That won't work. You have to click on "advanced". Then scroll down and click on "upload photos". Select the photo from your computer. Add or drag it to the attachments box, then click "done". Done!

    That's what I did. I just put them in a folder on my desk top in order to arrange them. I also shrank them down before I uploaded them. I've uploaded pics in the past and never had this issue.

    I don't know what this means, as mine works as OP described. I don't need to go to "advanced".

    in "reply"

    click on picture icon

    chose "from computer"

    go to computer files and double click on the one to add to uploader.

    click "upload"

    perhaps our computers see this site differently? I'm using a chromebook.

    Your method didn't work for me. The alternative "go advanced" method works for me. I'm using Windows 7 with Firefox browser.

    Let's see if this works.Why isn't this front wheel build working?-sscn0433.jpgWhy isn't this front wheel build working?-sscn0434.jpgWhy isn't this front wheel build working?-sscn0436.jpg
    It worked. Thanks Lombard! By the way, these wheels don't have any spoke tension on them.

    Check the spoke crosses on both sides of that wheel. The 3rd crosses on both sides aren't at the same height above the hub. You didn't cross over enough rim holes with one set of the spokes.

    Check the crossings from the spokes coming out between 6 and 4 o'clock.
    With bicycles in particular, you need to separate between what's merely true and what's important.

    I think you'll find that you didn't go to "the 4th hole" on both sides.

    Yeah, I see what you're saying. I wish I had the wheel in front of me right now. I won't get a chance to check it until a little bit later. I really appreciate the feedback from you guys.

    Dunno. It's impossible for me to tell which crosses are on which side of the wheel.

    Would a different angle help?

    No. It needs both sides separating from each other visually. So make us a circular card that goes at least to the final cross and take photos from each side of the wheel with the camera and wheel in exactly the same place OR you can do what really needs to be done so you can in future evaluate your own wheels - check the lacing pattern and hole count from each side of the wheel and compare.

    I've checked it over and hole count and crossings appear to be correct. See if these two pics help.Why isn't this front wheel build working?-img_20170317_133027.jpgWhy isn't this front wheel build working?-img_20170317_133039.jpg

    Looks ok to me. Starting from the flange, two crossings over the first two spokes, last crossing under the third spoke.
    Press the butt of a screwdriver on the outer most crossing pushing it down towards the hub flange. Press the spoke against the flange next to the elbow to align it.
