    Well, I'd put a few miles on it, then had a bit of a play. I did a few small but poorly (on purpose,
    of course) landed jumps, took it off a couple of 2 or so foot drops to (broken/rutted road) flat,
    clumsy as I could and everything, giving it some real slams into the (hard) ground, catching it
    sideways - the full abuse treatment, and, guess what?!?!?!?!?!?

    v v v v v v v v v v v v v v v v v v v v v

    Yeah, that's right - it's _totally_ and _utterly_ un-tweaked! Just as round and true as when I put
    it back on the bike ',;~}

    Cheers for the tips folks!

    Shaun aRe - it even feels more solid than the old one, heheheheheh...........

    Wheelbuilding is a wierd one. It's wierd because

    a) I've built a few dozen now and the longest lived is actually the first one.

    b) I have not been able to build satisfactory wheels since I read a book on
    ba.

    Must be galloping old age or something.

    Nice, Bill The mind serves properly as a window glass rather than as a reflector, that is, the mind
    should give an immediate view instead of an interpretation of the world.

    Well, it's only one word, but it's a better word than 'nice', which is lame, to say the least. Even
    my secondary school English teacher wouldn't alow us to use that word, "because it's really lame".
