How To Build A Wheel?

Slowly and carefully :D

Seriously, slowly and carefully. Lacing mistakes are a pain in the ass when you realise you gotta go back and redo all the leading spokes on one side or whatever (believe me, been there done that).

I've done my rear one twice as per Sheldon Brown's site.

That just sounds perverse in some twisted way...
