Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

gonna be a pain in the ass to calculate spokes for that. because the spokes are now not evenly distributed about the hub, but are evenly distributed on the rim.

Ah makes sense. How do I calculate spoke length if I have a rim and a hub? I plan on getting the kinlin xr-300's with Miche Primato Pista Track Hubset High Flange 28. But I dont want my LBS to use their own spokes, they are already so much more expensive than online

i'm about the get a road wheelset with xr-300s - 20 spokes F, 24 spokes rear. No weight limit. So i'm sure 28 will be plenty tough for the street.

If you were going to order that Ambrosio wheelset, bear in mind that FedEx (which is what that merchant uses) will kill you with import fees/duties.

Make sure any American retailer you order from ships with USPS only. Not UPS. The standard U.S. Postal Service. You'll pay only GST.

you'd have to buy it at the store, pretty sure you'd need a spoke length calculator.

kinlin doesn't make 28 spoke rims?

yes they do.
they don't do 36h, but kinlin comes in drillings of 18, 20, 24, 28 and 32.
check out fairwheel bikes, they stock kinlin rims, and in multiple colours.

XR-300 have an ERD of 582mm, same as velocity Deep-V, but you should measure to be sure.

you can use a 36h hub and 24h rim by skipping every 3rd hole.
cross length required is 2.18x, or just add 2mm to a 24h 2x length.

you would need about 4 different spoke lengths to do a 24h rim to a 28h hub.
