the testing the wheel ride

yesterday i went on a wheel building course and successfully built a rear disc wheel in about 2.5 hours, it was nice and true but really the big test was to go and ride on it. The ultimate test of my wheelsmithmanship. well i’m glad to report that the wheel is still true and round and it didn’t collapse under my weight or ham-fisted attempts at riding, very pleased about that!
ride 139
11 miles
total 2677
