How the customizing went...

The changes I made were all definitely for the good.The wider back wheel makes the back of the bike look complete, filled in so to speak, and the ride is appreciably better.

"Hey Rob, really interested in how your bike turned out with the customization especially the rebuild on the rear wheel and re-lacing the front wheel? Who did you use? Be great to know as I am looking to do the same myself. "
