Schwinn Typhoon Mark IV - new front wheel

It seems there is some assembly required.

36 stainless steel spokes, one Origin8 track hub, one Rhyno Lite rim, and 36 red splined spoke nipples. The next step is to lace the them up attaching the right spoke in the right holes of the rim and hub to give a 3 cross pattern.

We take bicycle wheels for granted but they are the heart of an efficient bicycle. These 4 components make a remarkably light and strong structure.
