So AtomicXRer, has picked Jan 12, for this event. But I have no idea what time he will make his appearance?
I could really be nice and make some green chili dip too. I better learn how to lace up a wheel by then.

Just make sure I have not drank over 10 beers before I start the wheel.

We used to cut all the spokes with a cutting torch, makes for a quick disassembly esp when the nipples got frozen, sorta like mine feel this morning

Since I plan to reuse the spokes, there'll be a 2 beer limit and no torches, pliers, adjustable wrenches, hammers ect...

Wheel

Hey AtomicXRer don't break the wheel down--just let the air out--Dwec can't stand a flat and it is a real show to watch him take it apart

I think an appropriate time would be around 1:00. It should take me about 3 hrs to lace it up.

Derek, you can come as long as you bring a proper spoke wrench, and a sledge hammer, can't
find mine.
