Straight pull spokes for 26" wheels?
I'm looking at a rear road hub on eBay that requires straight pull spokes. I want to build some narrow section 26" rims for MTB slicks; I have the rims already. They're 28 hole so reasonably priced hubs, esp. MTB, are scarce. No point putting pricey hubs on a '92 Trek 820.
In looking at all the usual suspects online (BikeTools.com, AEBike,Nashbar, etc., etc.) it seems that straight pull spokes are few & far between, and length selection is limited.
Do they come in shorter lengths for MTB wheels? If so where to get them? No point buying this hub if I can't use it.
