I'm building up a spare set of wheels for my son's bike so we don't have to swap from street to dirt tires. That gets messy when the dirt tires are setup tubeless with sealant.

Thanks to the boom in the bike industry, even getting parts is hard right now. So, I decided to buy just rims, repurpose the hubs from my old bike, and get spokes cut to length for these 24" rims. (I have a lot of spare parts from years of bike racing.)

The well used book under the wheels is The Bicycle Wheel by Jobst Brandt, pretty much the original tome on bicycle wheel theory and building. I don't build that many wheels, so when I do I need a good reference for what goes where.

The next step is bringing up tension and radial/lateral truing.
