I'm going to try to get it built by the weekend, unfortunately I have to do my taxes asap so I can
pay for it. And I need to build the wheels, too.

I may be asking some stupid disc questions as this is my first foray into disc brakes.

Good luck, remember that the leading and trailing spokes should be reversed for a disc front wheel
as apposed to a non-disc front wheel.

But I'm sure you know that.....or maybe not....or maybe you knew and then forgot....perhaps you know
but don't care.....maybe you care but don't know what I'm talking about....

Do you know what I'm saying? Bill ...one speed to rule them all, one speed to find them, one speed

I actually didn't know it until I was looking through the Shimano manual that came with my hubs. I
posted to r.b.t. but only one guy replied with the reasoning for this. And I'm still not clear on
the reasoning.

Here's me eyeing my new ride woefully in disarray:

And here's how it's coming along so far:

stuff, indoor photography in particular).

And here's one I found today of long lost Travis:

I've spent most of my money on mountain biking and windsurfing.
The rest I've just wasted.

Thanks! Shimano says to make the non-disc side the opposite for the front spokes but if I read the
above correctly the only important thing is to put the braking spokes on the disc side on the
outside of the flange, eh?

The frame didn't come with any extra parts nor did it look like it was already built up. I think I'm
safe. Next time I visit my tweaker friends in Temecula I'll have to do a little poking around.

The La Bruja was a close second for me.

I know, but it was late, and because of the supermarket strike there's not much in the house to
eat, and Del Taco is walking distance. A bean and cheese burrito ain't too poisonous. Coke on the
other hand...
