Just put a new rim on my bike, and it's laced up good enough to ride, but i'm not completely happy with it.  This is my first time lacing a wheel, and in light of my observations, i'm scared to even look at how out of whack the wheels on my other bikes are.  Anyone attending DW that prides themself as an expert in this area?  Care to share a bit of your knowledge?  I may be able to arrange payment via beer, etc.

it IS supposed to be round, right? :think:

I'd suggest that most attending DW are there for fun... but who knows, someone may be willing to work for the right daddy pop.

I seem to recall a picture of the handy work in wheel trueing (sp) of a bicycle hanging in either Billy's, Thumps or Twinnies garage. Since they will all be there maybe there's a chance of them helping you with that wheel.
Maybe someone can help me out with the pic, I can't seem to find it but I know you'd reconize the signature work.

That pic would be of Thump's front after a Brownie take-out special... the sub frame being equally as impressive.

That was one but not the one I was thinking of.
