Laced the match-painted NISI rim to a Shimano NEXUS hub (still need shift linkage) with spokes I cut and threaded myself. Slowly but surely, I'm ticking items off my bicycle-building bucket list. Bars and stem are Sunlite alloy items. Inexpensive, but I like the look.

I've started collecting parts for a run-to-the-store 20" take-apart bike. That Aerospoke 20" front wheel (451) has been matched with a similarly-sized NISI recumbent rim. Not intended to be a lightweight, look for lots of leather, wood, and brass bits in the future.
