    spoke length deepV formula hub radial lace

    i tried the search but couldnt find the info i needed. But its a simple question.

    I know a ton of us have deep v rims and formula hubs and a few have front wheels that are laced radial. what length spoke did you use for that? Im building up a front wheel with those components and i dont feel like doing it in 3x. thanks.

    mean while ill try to track down the measurements for the hub and the rim and plug it into a spoke calculator.

    its gotta be shorter than 281. 281 is about right for 3x, which is a better pattern especially with that hub, but its your ride.

    Yes you are correct...if you click on the spocalc thingy it will do all the math for you. If the numbers I got were right (I was a little sketchy on the hub info and they didn't have it in their database) then the spoke length is 261mm. 3x is like 281.6mm

    But don't just go by my number...get the real dimensions of the hub and plug them into spocalc.

    I always used to look up the hub dims. on IRO's site, but with their new layout they have removed that info. I never wrote it down since I could get it in 10 secs. at a computer, which I would need to be at anyway to get the spoke length. It might be nice to make a small database of dimensions of track hubs and popular rim choices and even some spoke lengths for as many combinations as people feel like working out.

    Well the spocalc does have a bunch of hubs...Phils for instance are on there...and you can add your own data to it and save the file on your computer. It really is a great little program.
