Build notes

262mm spokes were possibly 1mm too short to allow initial spoke wind up with spoke driver bit. Had to back off spokes by hand until 2 threads showing above nipple all round and start tensioning up from there. Spoke ends still finished engaged with nipple heads. Minimal spoke wind-up experienced.

Final tension on drive side 120 kgf. Variation less than 10kgf. Lateral run-out around 0.5mm. Radial run-out 0.5mm.
