Well, James just successfully relaced his real rear-wheel.
A particularly satisfying, gratifying, and important experiment. It is not the new spokes, they will not arrive until middle of next week if the shipment happens from San Jose on Friday. But it is a relacing of the old spokes as a trial to see if James could do it, and so that the vehicle is mobile until the new spokes arrive. Yes, we have not tried to move yet but there's every reason to think that it will go fine. James has been building these skills by observing prior wheel Builders and by frequently replacing spokes. This is a very useful Milestone to have passed.
