Using a hydraulic stresser to pre-stress the wheel, and bouncing the wheel as you bring up tension,help dramatically to produce a stable build. Linseed oil or purple loc tite help as well.
Colorado Cyclist holds the best wheels title.Too bad we don't sell
trials wheels.

If you're in town ,wanna check out some local riding ,givea holla @
1-800-688-8600 ext 117 and leave a mess age.

The dancing wheel stresser is the next dandiest trick.Also after lacing and nipping press withyour palms to bed the spokes,and then squeeze the parrallel spokes together after ever half turn as you bring it up ,do the bounce after every time round too.

And as always build it dished 1/4 " to the drive side then last step,tesion the non drv so you aren't over tightening the drive side nipples,this effectively tightens the drive side higher than you easily can without stripping the drv side.Just by using the lower tensioned non drv.

Go with brass or bust yo ass!
