    Those are long gone. It's my understanding that Deda no longer makes them. hamfoh is right - they're more brutal than comfortable. Too much drop.

    Angie packed up your stuff and I'm pretty sure she threw in a few stickers. If you didn't get a black one (thatsracist.gif), let me know and I'll hook it up.

    I figured they'd be similar to the RB-021's, do the Deda's have more drop or something?

    Got my BF stuff from my apartment manager this morning. Nicely packed, for some reason I was expecting a larger box.

    Thanks for the extra stickers, I just gotta clean my frame off before putting one on there.

    Haha... Yeah cool. Tell her I said thanks if you get the time.

    And man, I missed my package today. I got my rims, but not that other stuff. I call total bull**** because I was here at the supposed time and I do not see any sticky notice.

    uh oh. I'm thinking at this point the Novatec hubs I have aren't the same ones you are selling, 'cause the spokes seem too long.
    I'm watching a vid on youtube and my build lookin' a lil' too floppy right now.

    Post a pic. Do you have any way of measuring your hub flanges?

    Calv - that sucks about the other package. I hate when USPS pulls that crap.

    It was actually pretty windy. The notice probably blew the **** away. I'll just pick it up on Monday. Got finals on Monday and Tuesday anyway. If just these rims are distracting me from studying, think about how much damage the rest of the **** would do to me.

    Yeah, the biketube video. haha.
    & Here's a picture. I didn't know what to capture exactly but maybe you can see something.

    I thought I also might add that the nipples are tightened all the way too.
    ALSO...does it look right so far? haha.

    My very crude measurements:
    Rear Hub:
    Flange to flange = ~2 1/4"
    Diameter = ~2 7/8"

    Front Hub:
    Flange to flange = ~2 5/8"
    Diameter = ~2 7/8"

    ALSO...this might help:
    There are numbers on the front hub below the Novatec website that say: T99040600147
    Rear hub: T99040600186

    Redo your build and check if you got the numbers right. They have novatec track hubs in their system so all you have to do is choose. (The ones Scrod sells are the FHA165SBT, front/rear)

    Ahh, I see. I see. Well, let me try and get a better measurement.


    ^ I'm TRYING to go 3x haha.

    update: Man, idk. It seems to be right. The numbers are extremely close to that model above. So, wtf am I thinking?
    Maybe I should finish the actual build before I start going crazy. haha.

    Yeah, by the time you have leading and trailing spokes laced up the hub will be twisted a bit from its current position (in relation to the rim) and that will take up some slack.

    At this point we only know those spokes are too long for a radial build.

    I might add that you should leave a few threads showing before you finish lacing spokes.

    Yeah I wouldn't worry about it. You're going to give the hub a little twist later that will tighten the spokes up quite a bit. You should leave some thread visible on the nipples though, like 3-4.

    I only tightened all the way to see if it was floppy 'cause it was loose.
    I was worried because at that point (twisting) their spoke SEEMED to have more tension.
    Well, let's try and finish this up now. haha.

    We always use the lacing method found in this book (there's a free downloadable pdf at the bottom of the page). It's pretty easy to tell if your spoke lengths are correct before getting in too far.
