    Nothing more relaxing than building a wheel.

    You're missing the most important tool for wheel building.

    Beer.

    If you want to make wheel building hard and comical, try it while smashed. It is kinda like Beer Pong, except you have a lasting monument to your drunken stupidity.

    Phew... Two completely done.

    The standard x3 wheel was easy. Those are for the rear.

    The first of the Drive wheels was a complete PITA!!! Dishing the rim 8mm off center of a 20inch rim is painful.

    It's funny until someone gets hurt. Then it's hilarious.

    ALL the hipsters are doing it. You take 4 20" rims, 3 32h hubs, and lace them ALL together 66 and 1/3 cross. Truing is a byotch though.

    1 Beer per wheel. I'm normally a pretty high strung person, wheel building actually relaxes me for some reason.
