Very nice Gary, I need to do some wheels also. Did you check for run out? If so was there and how did you correct for it. Thanks John

As long as your hub flanges are straight and the felloes are not bent you should not have any issues. I went over all my parts and made sure they were as good as I could make them before I started. Most runout issues are with the demountable rims. Best of luck!

I want to try rebuilding my two front wheels this winter, they have new tires and tubes on refurbished demountable rims but the wheels are as original, spokes look ok and tight but when I pulled the tires and rims off the spoke ends seem pretty soft, I'll keep an eye until rebuild, besides, I just want to do it!

I got my spokes from Noah Stutzman 33656 C.R.12, BALTIC,OH 43804 330-897-1391. If you call, leave a message the phone is outside on fence. He will return your call. I ordered a set (48) spokes, it took about 6 weeks, he schedules spoke making periodically. Beautiful work.

I called Mr. Stutzman about a month ago about getting some spokes and he told me that he no longer sells just the spokes but however, will rebuild your wheel in his shop. He said the reason he stopped selling just spokes was that he had too much trouble with people having other issues and blaming it on his spokes.

Nuts! I'm not against paying to have work done if it's right but darn' I really wanted to do this just because!

Yes, all because of some damn Englishmen not admitting their screw-ups.

Gary - they look great!

Steve & Thomas,

You should still be able to order spokes from the vendors. Probably at a higher price -- but still available the last time I checked.

Respectfully submitted,
