how did you secure the spokes while building the wheel? ( in the instructions they used double sided tape) , the first wheel (spare) I used blutac, messy after the wheel was completed. The second wheel ive glued each spoke as I fitted them, but drying time between each spoke means it took hours

Hi Andrew,

A drop of Pauls faverite..

The dreaded superglue to each of the spokes.

drying time is immediate, so didn't take to long

This was my preferred fix for the spokes. It doesn't take long for the super glue to dry and there's not any spillage left over!
