Also, you should replace the duct tape with Nitto electrical tape, I reckon that'd look better but that's just my opinion so yeah.

Yea, i will buy an spacer later.

I lived in Passmore street Rossmoyne, where are are you live?? So you really don't like I use the silver electrical tape, But I have already rewrap it twice to make sure it is tidy enough, you can have a look, as I posted the photos few posts before. cheer

I think what he means is replace the duct tape with Nitto tape because using duct tape makes it look a bit... merhhhh. So no need to rewrap.

Today I went to Ideal cycles and asked them to give me a hand. We did together and so much fun. They are really kind and helpful.
The wheelset is fine in this stage. I have a short ride today, all ran good.
HEHE, now learning how to stop the rear wheel...
Will do some more photos outdoor later....
Thank for reading~

If you want to learn to stop the rear wheel I suggest you get toe clips.

Oh yeah, and nice ride :D
