I don't think you would be able to guarantee even tension in the same way you would on a proper wheel build. To be fair, I could be completely wrong, but it just seems like a bodge when you could spend an extra 20 mins doing it properly

I ran ahead a bit and hid, dropped my jeans and took my top off and started chasing them whilst spraying beer all over them and making weird noises.

Buy the right sized spokes and then make a trip down here and I can help you out with it.

Are you allowed to make big boy decisions yet?

Edit:

It wont get egged if you do it correctly...
Loosen ALL spokes, then replace as you go working from the valve stem around. I've done it before and IMO its really not that difficult, but its IS a pain in the arse.

Much easier and beneficial to take them all out and replace... starting from scratch is easier than trying to problem solve each little step...

Been thinking of getting the S4 stem. Anyone have any input on how they ride/hold up?

Yeah but I'm sure they know this so there warranty program is probably good on it. I would look into a Brian Foster stem!
