Spoke my rims

Hi
Does anyone know someone who could lace up my rear wheel rim?
I live Leeds/Wakefield way.
Thanks
Ady

Adrian, have you thought of Agbrigg Chromers on Leeds. They now do a variety of services, wheel building included. Paul

Lacing the wheel isn't too tricky. I do the lacing myself then take to a wheel builder for tensioning
