Hi, I'm building up the wheels for my new Flash 29er Carbon build. I don't have a jig so I'm building it Ghetto Style (in the frame) The rear is fine, as I can check any offset against the chainstays. The front, however has nothing to check against! (bloody lefty! ha ha) I can only eyeball it against the downtube to see if it's centred / dished right.
I wonder if someone would mind measuring the distance between the INSIDE of their lefty leg and the rim of the front wheel (the bit that would have been the braking surface if there were rim brakes) If you can tell me this distance and your rim make / model, then I should be able to work out how far the centre of my rim (Stans Crest) is from the lefty and get the dishing spot on.
Many thanks if you can help!
