Jon_Lindgren: I think you miss understood my commet. Like you said, you use the driver tool to thread on nipples after the first 8 are in place... that is what I am saying is weird. I think most of us would load all the spokes in the hub before threading on any nipples.

Tarka: It's an angleset with a tilted top surface, so we had to use a small wedge under the press to make it go in straight. This is why it looks funny.

kyle10bike: If you check again, you will see that the sequence is not in strict order. However, I still use the driver tool to thread on nipples after the first 8 are in place.

Nice clip. You've got to love a spotless new bike coming together. Made me want to go work on my bike.
