looks good, and 3 hours?! My first time lacing one wheel took about that long haha, 2 wheels would probably taken me twice as long -_____-

Building wheels is fun, next time you do it try to go faster & beat your old record, I do that & it makes it even more fun haha

3 hours is long man. My first lacing was about 2 hours lol. My last was 1 hour or maybe a little less.

If you know your wheels, lacing is a breeze. Fastest for me was 45 give or take a tiny bit minutes including installation and truing. First time ever was about an hour and a half, maybe less. Mind that I've only laced 3x cross pattern only. 4x cross may take me an extra 5-10 minutes or so.

Shit I think the fastest I ever laced a wheel was a bit under 10 minutes. Never really tried to speed lace like Turbo at Albes did for that contest a couple years ago. Never really timed myself truing it though

I hope I only get better! Nice knowing I CAN do it myself. Was always afraid of screw it up before. Figured it never hurts to share, as it may convince someone else who thought like I did to try!

Not bad!

A little patience and practice and you will be down to 30 mins a wheel.

That guide is what taught me, can get a wheel laced, trued and bedded within the hour. Even made a bit of cash from kids who dont want to learn new things as thats the "boring stuff" personally I love it.

I was down to lacing wheels in a half hour. Stoked that you got it though! Peiple think lacing is a hell of a lot harder than it reallt is.

I seek progression, not perfection.

Thanks!
And you're right, it isn't hard at all. Trying is a bit time consuming though. Lol.
