    Hi, after an accident two months ago i'm finally good to get back on the bike but short a front wheel. So i'm looking for someone who can build me a set of wheels (decided to get a new set since i've got a hubset lying around), and possibly help source some rims and spokes. Was just wondering if you guys had any recommendations in terms of shops or others. thanks!

    that's nasty, hope everythings alright. i hada similar thing happening where a guy walks out in front of me without checking the lights ( i had green), knocked me off onto 7 sisters rd, luckily no cars behind me. sprained hand and fucked front wheel, still waiting for a new one and for my hand to heal... pedestrians...

    thanks alot! it's a 32h, thanks for saving my butt from getting wrong length spokes and having to go back and look like a pillock asking for other ones...

    that would be brilliant, it's a cxp 33 rim, 599 dia, 14 mm deep (according to dt),
    Miche track hub,59mm pitch circle dia, 45mm flange distance,
    does that help?

    Hi, i realise this is probably going to make me sound like a completely trout but i am trying to figure out the spoke lengths for a wheel im getting built using the DT calculator but i am stuck at the field that say "number of intersections". now i'm planning 3 cross on a 32h rim, but have absolutely no experience with wheelbuilding so not sure how many intersections that involves... any help much appreciated..

    yep, can't say i'd recommend 48/16 for skidding, along with wearing tyres like a madman it's quite hard work...

    saw loads of fixed wheel bikes today, normally there's none on my daily stretch... saw a guy on a blue (fort?) bike w blue deep rims (don't think they were deep v's but not sure) on stamford hill. A girl at the big junction halfway down amhurst road, think she had orange hair or something, don't remembr exactly it was semi-early...
    Then again a guy on a old battered looking red bike at the bottom of cambridge heath rd turning onto whitechapel road heading towards whitechapel... anyone?|
