Build notes

Wheel went together nicely. Rim holes lubed with cotton bud dipped in anti-seize, spoke threads lubed with Mobil 1. Spoke length of 264mm DS and 262mm NDS worked well. Initial spoke wind up with nipple driver resulted in dish being offset about 3mm towards NDS (disc side). Meant that achieving final tension was done using DS spokes. These have less tension than NDS so made spoke wind up less of an issue.

Final build weight 568g:
