holy shit hot!

did you build that yourself?!

Of course, Simon=]

Fun facts:

32H hub -> 20H rim = unevenly spaced spokes.

15mm DT nipples are neccessary in spots

Modifying the ERD by shouldering nipples with washers is also neccessary.

I managed to get it scary tight, but we'll have to see what happens when its run downhill.

I'm freakin' stoked for this. Now you can't take it apart to build another wheel, you just have to find another disc hub.

..says Mr. "Just run the Coaster hub".

I'll admit it, this is way better. I just thought the deadline was going to be more difficult to attain.
