Hi,

Generally speaking "high spots" are due to a lack of balance of the spokes tightness relative to the hub being central.

Unless of course there are massive dents/twists in the rims - then thats another level

I'd check that the rims lay flat 1st (without hubs/spokes installed) then get them built up by someone who knows how.

my 2 pence
After 80's Hutch pedal 9/16" spindles Only . Just really need the Right but i'll happily have both :-)

Hi,

I've used a chap called George twice before but he's moved miles away from me now. Try looking for him on FB (I don't do FB) he asked me to follow him (whatever that means :) )

He said it was GTR

Maybe give him a try?
