I don't like unicycling, I love it.

You're probably right. I've e-mailed UDC to make sure.

I wasn't aware of this. I started with a random spokehole on the hub.

I use the UDC spoke calculator and went up to the nearest mm. That seems to be the correct length for the way I laced the wheel.

There's a print that says "Nimbus unicycles" which I put on the left side

I think got this right. The spokes are not quite in the bottom of the nipples, but almost.


The video was a little bit hard to follow without a wheel to build. I will get more infomation on lacing before my next build. I will leave this wheel as it is since no one has adviced me not to.
