    Building own wheels

    I am interested in learning to build/maintain my own wheels. Can you recommend so good documentation/books/videos?

    Buy this book, I just built my first wheels and it made it really easy, it explains the process, even shows you how to lace them 3x. It was much easier than I thought it would be.

    I used Mike T's site, sheldon browns site, and a little bit of park tools site and felt completely prepared to build wheels with that info.

    I personally dont think its that big of a topic to write an entire book about. You lace it up and make it straight and even, theres not much more to it. The "skill" part comes down to speed. You'll get faster as you get better, but if you put some effort in your very first wheel can be excellent!
