  1. The bag ties on the spokes is a great idea.How do you remove the wheel brgs without striking the inner race?I didn't know that they could be removed without damaging them.Thanks for posting the information

  2. Good video but failed at the end to in depth explain the truing steps which is arguably the most important part and hardest part. When it rubbed or whatever or went out of line, what did you do? You spun the wheel for some reason and tightened some random spoke? More steps should have been taken. I felt like the end assumed you already knew what to do.

  4. RRR Tool Solutions i found on your website instructions on Motorcycle Wheel Lacing (it's how I found this video,) the particular example you used: "you’ll often find that truing is accomplished faster by going slower," was something I self learned as a 17 year old off road competitor regarding corners, lines, and covering major valleys. Maybe not everyone, but if I slowed at specific points for just enough time, it's like then the line would jump out at me. A drop in 1/2 second to look, then starts adding multiple 1/4 seconds savings goes right into the bank at the finish line. That was learned before I knew how to go around a corner, certain kind of corners that is.

  5. Thank you for your writing the article and recording this video. I've been trying to lace up the front spokes on a little Yamaha PW80 for days now. Even using the photos before I dismantled the wheel assembly, I couldn't get the right pattern to allow the spoke nipples to pull in tight. Turns out I had the wrong pairing. The wire tie method did the trick. Thanks!
