Re: Attempting to lace the wheel for my Honda Shadow, what am I doing wrong?

I suggest you go on line and do a search for your bike year and model and look for images. You might be able to zoom in and see which way the spokes were laced on the front wheel.

Re: Attempting to lace the wheel for my Honda Shadow, what am I doing wrong?

I recommend perusing The Bicycle Wheel by Jobst Brandt. Dry and ungodly boring. Filled with information you’d never need. But, his explanations on wheel lacing are the best out there and can cross over to motorcycle wheels. I find myself referring to it every now and then. Too late now for you, but ...

Re: BBK in Elgin
