Haha I was hoping that radial lacing would simplify things a bit!

Can you elaborate on that 24h rim to 36h IGH lacing? What cross pattern is used on your wheel? Also, what do you mean by *0.67?

Radial lacing front 28h on 36h rim? Help with calculations

Hi, is this viable? If so how can I calculate the spoke length based on differences in angles, etc? It's a small wheel (349mm) and a strong rim (m14a) and hub (phil wood).

This should be worth finding out. I believe that the Modolo rebranded levers did state "made in Italy" at the clamps, whereas the Scott old school bars have "made in USA" printed on them.
