I love it! I get a downvote for merely asking a question.
So, this question was edited a bit and reopened as a result. How long should it take to rebuild a wheel?
I would like to know if it's alright for me to go through my copy of Zinn and the Art of Road Bike Maintenance and then post, "How long should it take to X?" for various repairs? What's to stop an individual from doing this in order to gain rep points?
In some ways the question on wheel rebuilding is valid. However, this opens up a golden opportunity for gaming the system. That is, it opens the opportunity for asking questions purely for gaining reputation points as opposed to genuinely trying to solve a bicycle related problem.
This coming weekend I plan to disassemble and repair the brake/shifter lever on my commuter bike. Do I ask the question, "How long should it take?" in order to pick up more rep points?
A nice feature for the site might be to develop a chart for typical bicycle repair times. Similar to the terminology index. Some site users are definitely DIY types; but others will be taking their bikes into shops for repairs. So, a chart with reasonable time estimates for typical repairs would be very useful.
