saying hi from elgin IL

I'm new here I joined this site to see if there's anyone that can help me figure out how to spoke my 40 hole sturmey archer three speed drum brake AB hub into a 24" x 2.125 rim. I tried to read the sheldon article on alternate spokeing patterns and am not really understanding what I need to do. What kind of rims do I need to find 24,28, 32 hole,or is 36 possible? I have no idea 24 and 28 doesn't seem enough. 32 all I could find is horse cart wheels. 36 I thought I read 18 different sized spokes. What would be best? And what would be the best pattern for a drum brake? And how do I calculate the spoke lengths? I'm in over my head. And new to this forum thing to but it seems to be the only way to get help with this.

Welcome. I was going to direct you to our Mechanics forum but I see that you've already found it.

Cheers and welcome. Hopefully you get more info in Mechanics forum.

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
