    Fuji Track Pro Wheels!

    Hey there, A friend of mine owns one and is bringing it in to have me properly build the wheels. The radial front wheel is way toooooo flexy at Forrest City Velodrome for him to ride. And the rear rim is ment for a 9speed rear wheel not a dishless wheel. (bonhead spec)

    Anyways, I'm lookin for anybody who has rebuilt their front wheel 3x and can tell me the spoke lenth they used. Or anyone who has the hub dimentions / rim ERD. Normaly I would just measure it all up and plug it into my calculator but I wont have the wheel in my hands untill tomorow and I'd like to get the spokes cut and prepped tonite so when it comes time its a 20min opperation.

    Thanks in advance for any tips.

    A radial pattern is actually the stiffestest (by only a little bit) laterally. If he's flexing the front wheel, it's not because of the lacing pattern. How do you know it's the wheel that's flexing and not the fork?

    Or the hub bearings.

    I had some 'flex' in my rear wheel recently and didn't know why until I realized that the hub bearings were loose. I have no idea how the bearings got that way, but oh well.

    And another thing. Rims are usually agnostic when it comes to whether they'll be laced into a dished or a dishless wheel. The only exception I can think of is an OCR-type rim.
