Long story short, i picked up excel 182.15 rims new for 70 each that were drilled of them. I will end up with the hubs, rotors, spokes, and rims, costing only 500.

I have to take photos of everything and put it up here. Heres the rims with the rear laced. I ordered matching spokes for the front wheel, will have that laced next week. Im going to be making a big push on a different bike next week, but i will at least get everything layed out for this one. The real fun doesnt happen til the jig gets here.

Nice looking bits there!!

Question (and I'm no expert...it's just cause lacing wheels is front of mind as I recently did mine...):
There's an interesting looking spoke pattern in your laced wheel?   As my eye goes 'round the rim, appears that there's a pair of spokes that cross near the rim, then a pair that don't, followed by pair that do, and so on ...     Interesting, is all.....

Both sets cross, just at different points, i really didnt pay attention when i did it, just put them where they line up lol.  A more fun thing to ask about is how i tune the pitch of the spokes to true them. ;D

Heh, i do it by ear actually. Once I have everything torqued i tap each spoke and check the sound. Getting the pitch right usually gets the wheels true, minus a couple of tweeks. Ive had it put it perfectly true on more than once occasion. Ive thought about figuring out the note and using a digital tuner, but i usually just use one spoke as a reference.

I usually tune my spokes to an Em6 chord.  I know that some tune to a D Maj bar chord but these heavy metal chords lead to too much unsprung weight.

ya.....and although most wouldn't fret much about it, ya also run the risk of getting a flat if you hit anything sharp.
