It started so well
I got the brake side of the hub worked out fine, and it really didn't take too long. But when I flipped the rim over and started on the star side, the inner row of spokes just didn't line up with the right holes. After looking carefully at my rear wheel, I realised the holes in the rim I was lacing had been drilled in the wrong direction on that side. I checked and re-checked, then emailed the guy off the JJ who'd sold me the rim.
He said 'Yeah, I'm a V-Twin dealer (this is a V-Twin rim) and I quite often have a problem with their products'. Now he tells me...
Anyone need an 18" chrome hose reel?
