I posted back in Dec that I was going to install some rocky mountain brakes. It's been an adventure since then.
I decided to replace the wood spokes when the wheels were off. I was able to contact a local an old order Mennonite who said he had done some before for a ''T''. He wanted to do them in oak but I insisted on hickory. That was $50 more because he had to source the wood. He has a ''buggy shop''.
So that was Feb and in May I get a call saying they are done. Yikes, all different sizes and the wood looks suspect. Not able to use them. I pay 1/2 for his troubles.
I then turn to Stutzman , and get the spokes mid Aug, but they are work of art.
Now finally I can start to get back to fixing up the ''T''.old spokes and ''new'' mennonitestutzman spoke on top

Criminy! (about those spokes, Yikes!) I think I could do better with a hand saw and turning with my drill-press.
Welcome back!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
