Wheel-building Al Fresco
The weather was a bit nicer, today, than it has been for the past little bit. So, I moved the wheel-stand out to the front yard, I disassembled my 650b wheels, and relaced the rims onto disc-brake hubs.
After the wheels were trued and tensioned, I mounted the tires and then installed the disc rotors. If you are ever planning on owning disc wheels, invest in a set of Torx fittings for your ratchet. The ratchet method allows you to mount the disc in about a third of the time required with the tool supplied with the brakeset.
So now, I can check out the 650b performance out. At this point, I can run the bike as a 700 x whatever road or cross set-up, 650b road or mountain, 650bx29er, or 29er mtb.
