Does anyone know how to lace the heavy duty spokes to the rim and hub.

I check at my local dealers and they told me to bring it to a bicycle shop. Does this sound right? I would rather try it myself so any tips would help.

I am only doing the rear wheel. If anybody has a gold front rim laying around and wants to sell it let me know.

Thanks

You will be in for a long day. www.50ccracing.com has instructions. You will have to counter sink the wholes on your rim. Have a look and let me know how it goes..

30 mins? man it took me like 2.5 hours to do it all. i used a hand drill to drill the holes. i made a jig or "truing stand" out of wood. i now replace spokes for people around here... just have to pay attention to what your doing the whole time... metally exhausting...

I have an idea on how to lace wheels, but my dad can do both wheels in about 45 minutes.



Its a lot harder with used spokes. If your in no rush, let them and the nipples soak in carbrator cleaner for the night.

LACING REAR WHEEL

HEY,

YOUR BETTER OFF GOING TO A MOTORCYCLE SHOP..... BUT THE LABOR

PRICE WILL KILL YOU TIME IS MONEY!!!! YOU HAVE TO DRILL THE HUB

OUT WITH A BIT THE SAME DIAMETER AS THE SPOKE AND THEN COUNTER SINK SLIGHTLY SO THE SPOKE HEAD SEATS IN THE HUB.

THIS IS SO THE SPOKE DOESN'T BIND UP. A LOCAL BICYCLE SHOP

MAY GET INVOLVED BUT THE REAR WHEEL WILL NOT PROPERLY FIT

IN A BICYCLE TRUING STAND I HAVE A PARK TRUING WHEELSTAND

AND HAD TO RIG UP A JIG TO GET THE PROPER DISH.... THE DISH

IS THE PROPER CENTERING OF THE RIM TO THE TWO HUB FLANGES

THE FRONT IS EASY BUT THE REAR HAS THE SPROCKET PLUS THE

HUB SPACERS TO DEAL WITH ITS A LOT OF WORK BUMMER SORRY.

50CC.COM HAS DETAILS....
