El Guapo - Rear wheel

I was up and going first thing this morning, to take advantage of morning temperatures. I built several brackets to mount the seat, cleaned up the rear wheel spokes and nipples, and polished up the hub and wheel rim. After a late brunch, I settled in on the couch and watched some Indycars while I assembled the rear wheel. The stars were aligned, as this was the most true wheel I have ever assembled. I simply didn't need to do any truing at all. I just got everything snug, and it was spot on.
