On a steel chrome rim I ride...

My pre-unit is finally, officially, at long last... a roller. I got the Bultaco hub laced up to a steel chrome rim by Matt at

Because the Bultaco spokes are larger than a standard spoke, the spoke holes on the rim needed to be enlarged, which leaves a raw edge. What I've done a few times in the past is heat the rim up nice and hot and spray some paint in each spoke nut. The idea is the paint creaps into the crevices and seals up potential rust spots.

It's getting there, I just need the part that goes VRROOOOM.
