I'm wanting to lace a 16" rim to my CB360 rear tire. I have the rim. I have the hub. I have the spokes. It seems though that the only way I can get the spokes into the hub is by bending the snot out of them. It seems that that isn't a good approach but possibly necessary. I can take off the gear which will buy me a bit of space on one side. But even with that, it seems I have to bend them to get them in. Is this how it works? Or am I just weakening my spokes and heading for disaster when I try to ride this thing?
