One historical reenactment wheelset laced up (and now sitting in the basement waiting for me to build a fork with a SON SL-style insulated dropout) in a 3/2/1 lacing pattern (the front wheel is laced 1x, the rear wheel is laced 3x DS, 2x NDS) in something in the ballpark of 80-90 minutes. I’m not sure how durable the Pacenti Brevet rims are, so before I ride it I’m going to walk the spokes with a tension meter to make absolutely certain that I’ve not overtensioned the thing.

But it sure is silvery. It will look nicer after it’s been ridden in a bit and the shininess is hidden under a layer of road grime.
