Origin8 propulsion track hubs are just relabled formula SH51's if I remember.

267mm or 268mm spoke will work, though you'd be better off with a 268mm. Also order a few extra spokes than you need, in the case you mess up a spoke and they come useful when fishing the spoke nipples through the rim.

Rear, 3 cross 32 spoke. What I posted,
2 cross 32 spoke 257.

Doing spoke sizes for myself at the moment, so had the spoke length calc that I use up already.


Novatecs to open pros here...

I find it's better to round down, not up.
