bore us are you kidding? This is the stuff we LOVE! Keep em coming.

BTW, mind sharing your secret to 1) getting the spokes to move (what oil, how long, and how did you apply) 2) your rim straightening process?

Ummmm..Lots of beer?
I put some rust buster on the spoke threads and let em soak for a few minutes.I did this 3 times and slowly worked the threads back and forth, Avout 1/16 turns tightening /loosening. It took about an hour but it was well worth the wait. It DOES help he has a tire machine, so taking the tires off is a 5 minute job...for him....2 hour adventure and lots of laughs for me. Chris really helped out with the truing. He has a truing stand and a sharpie. talk about cool! We just stuck to it and got that front rim straight. The rear was pretty straight, just some lil dings as stated before. Tracy is getting a new front rim for her 27th birthday...hehe 27. anyways I will video tape and picture it and show you the process we used. Chris had me start at one point on the rear rim and do 1/4 turns every 3rd spoke. when I got to my starting point I would skip a spoke and reapeat this 3 times. That is 12 spokes for each rotation. 3 X 12= 36 spokes which is the number of spokes on my rim. Pretty neat.

Ahh very cool.

So did you have the tire off when you were losening the spokes? So you could put the rust stuff in from both sides?

Ya we had the tires off however; The biggest proplem Kevin had with loosening his spokes was he wasn't using a good spoke wrench. I think if you just put some oil on the spoke spoke nipples everytime you ride centrifical force should help move the oil all the way into nipple. The spoke wrench I used is from a company call DRC and you can get one through Langston racing or throught me. I think it's like $20 but it comes with all the different sizes and the heads just screw into the wrench. And I just thought of another idea to oil thoses spoke nipples. I wonder if one of those cable lubing tools would fit on a spoke? It would take forever but alot cheaper then re-lacing a wheel.

Thanks, that's great info.

Next time I'm in socal, I'll buy one from you or Langston Racing as they are right next to where I stay. I just have the "stock" one that came with my bike, and yeah, it's not very good at all.
