    So what you think this rig is going to come in at complete? Would be surprised if it's under 23, and if it does I'd suggest a new scale. 13 lbs incomplete, what's that tell anyone.

    Are my eyes flaking out on me or is the non drive side of that rear wheel laced all leading spokes with no crossed spokes? And is the front all leading on one side and all trailing on the other?

    If so, can someone tell me how this works? My brain can't handle it.

    spokes do look kind of weird - maybe it's some 'new thing' we haven't heard of yet

    Very very pretty bike well done

    one flange is being torqued cw and the other ccw--it's balanced but there's more torsion on the hub body than regular lacing.

    you should always chime a bell or yell out when you are going fast around a corner when you know there is a blind spot so its partially your fault
