I hate November, so I built some novelty wheels to cheer myself up. They’re not going to get ridden, I was just experimenting with different spoke lacings (3-leading 3-trailing above, snowflake below), using up some odd-length spokes I ended up with and messing with stuff I found in the spares box.
I do enjoy wheelbuilding, it’s very satisfying. I have been riding too, but it’s been so muddy and dark and grim that I’ve blocked out all recollection of it. Let’s just pretend that November has been about wheelbuilding instead.
