Wheel Building

So on my recent rehab of my R100gs I had the rims polished, bought Woody's Monster spokes, blasted and clear powder-coated the hubs. Laced up the wheels and after giving it some thought I called Woody's and shipped him the wheels. Now I used to own a bicycle shop for 20+ years and I have built 1000's of wheels but I decided that having a wheel come apart under me at 70+ wasn't worth the $$.
