    Hi all, this is my first try at wheel lacing:confused:
    Must of done something wrong:(
    The tire is to big for the rim now:oops:
    What do you think?:D
    Keep looking up! Ken.

    You have the spokes too tight!
    Back them off.

    Not serious at all, just back off the spokes and let the rim expand to its proper size....

    Enjoying the joke, Steve

    Not to worry:cool:
    I had a 26"wheel with half the spokes gone. So my wife said I should lace it up with fishing line and use it for garage art. So I just put the 700c tire on it for added effect:p
    Keep looking up! Ken.

    you could try hacking out a bit of the tyre and making THAT smaller as well!

    You know that in industry we actually cut and superglue large "O"rings to the size we need.

    Amazed me when I first saw it.
