holler n thanks,,your wheel looks grea,,now get it muddy and tell us how well it workst

notice how little weight you needed because of properly positioning an extra rim lock
hey woody,

as far as spoke length goes...
on the speedo drive side of the hub (not the brake side), the inboard row of 9 spokes were a wee bit short but there is only bit of thread visible below the nipple...
i hope that makes sense???
not being a wheel professional, i am not sure of the proper lingo to use...
anyway, i am not anticipating any trouble or anything....
just info for the next guy...

i sure am glad i decided to run 2 rimlocks on each wheel....
sure makes balancing a lot easier!!!

i am looking forward to getting it muddy, but the real test will be in hitting the sand dunes....

thanks again.
