    Araya TX-350 36 hole spoke tension?

    I have an old Novara Randonee with Araya TX-350, 700C double walled, 36 hole rims. I'm replacing the spokes and can't find a manufactures website. Does anyone know what the spoke tension should be or were I can go to look up the spoke tension? Thank You.

    Just a guess, but I've been looking around at spoke tensions myself and it seems just about every double-walled raod rim I've looked at is around 110kgf to 120kgf. Maybe a little less than that? 100-110?

    If it is a rear wheel I'd put the driveside spokes on at least 120 kgf.
