Subject: [CR] Free rim (with a catch)

I had a loaner wheel returned with a broken hub. The rim is a 36-hole 700c Grand Bois (nice Japanese copy of a Super Champion 58). Wheel borrower claims only 1500 km on rim. Shows a little brake surface wear, which will polish right out. The rim is free.

The catch is, I have to build it into a wheel for you. Spokes, labor and shipping to CONUS is $100. Send me your hub, I will build the wheel to my usual meticulous standards with new Wheelsmith double butted stainless steel spokes, pack it carefully and ship it to you.
