I would that the Sram hub would have 36 holes. Every third hole is skipped on the hub yet evenly spaced on the rim.

Is it a 36H hub laced to a 24H rim?

How many spokes are there? Based on your numbers, yes, it would have to be 24 spoke rim and 36 spoke hub.

I can't see enough in the picture to count spokes. I see Sram IG hubs most often with 32 or 36 holes. Using only 2/3 of the holes leaves the 32H hub out (I figure that they used whole spokes!!).

Thanks, I had never thought of that and it gives me several cool ideas.

I don't care about the strength or other stuff, I'm no beast and 24 spokes will serve me fine. I have a 20/24 bike anyway so low spoke count has already worked for me.

That's my wheel on a belt drive Moulton TSR-2 .. SRAM A-2 Automatix laced to a Velocity rim .. I've done 36/24 on a number of 36h internal geared hubs .. the two I ride the most are the Moulton (daily) and my 700c Titanium road bike with a vintage 2 speed Sachs Automatic .. so far through the past few years, no broken spokes or any other wheel issues.

All kinds of possibilities exist for front wheels with radial spokes... I did a 24h rim on a 36h hub years ago.

Not long ago I built a rear with a 24h rim on a 32h hub, but using half the NDS holes and all the DS holes on the hub; it was a Campy G3 (triplet) rim with 2 DS spokes for every NDS one. Had a 27h rim I was going to lace to a sweet old 36h 600 hub, but the rim had a flat spot

I was pretty sure this is a 24h on a 36h just from looking at the pic, but to prove it, here:



If you can identify opposite holes on the hub and/or get a handle on the lacing pattern, it's easily deduced.

Really, you had a 27h rim? You counting the valve hole?
