    Hi jtrops, thanks for all your help with wheel building. I've now built a number of them, and even recently went back and rebuilt the first one that I built. That wheel is now about as perfect as possible. I mean it is nice. Very even tension, high tension. A great wheel.

    I just took on a project though for a friend. It's a 26" bike rim that's out of true. I've gotten good at building wheels from scratch, but not so much old wheels. Do you suggest I simply loosen all the spokes to almost no tension and true as if it's a new wheel? That would give me a baseline.

    Hey jtrops, I'm rebuilding a wheel, but a nipple got stripped under and on top, so no way to get it off without cutting the spoke. Will cutting the spoke with a cutter under tension hurt the rim?
