Joel (not his real name--not trying to embarrass him) pre-ordered this wheelset. Dream wheels for his new Krampus--that's what they were gonna be. I built 'em the way I always do--heaps of time spent lacing, pre-aligning, lubricating, tensioning, stress relieving, retensioning, re-stress relieving, overandoverandover, until tension was *there* and it was time to bring them into final true, round, and then balance out the tension. Shod 'em, aired 'em up, and vi-ooooo-la, done.
Trouble is Joel has a whole lotta life going on right now, and suddenly his dream wheels are a bit out of his financial reach. Funny how a seriously sick kid can suddenly snap priorities into focus.
Bummer--for him. But maybe not for you?
