Anybody knowing about spokes calculations of spokes lengths?PeterRider

Does anybody have recipes for spokes lengths 32h hub -> 24h rim ? Besides the obvious "draw it in autocad and measure it" (I suck with autocad).

On my Bike Friday I have 24h rims with 36h hubs, but that's not the same ratio so I cannot measure there :-(

Thanks,

Pierre

There's a few. A good Excel spreadsheet one I found works well. Some will have more extensive database of rims and hube than others, so check a few. Top 10 hits should get what you need.

they have hubs listed and rims so fill in the spaces and it will show erd and spoke length
I second the www.dtswiss.com calculator (nm)hudsonite

If you give me the list( hubs and rims) of components, I should be able to reply with proper spoke length. Please give # of desired crosses. Divide spoke count by 9 to get max # of crosses(IE 36 will allow 4X but 32 will not)

Also, I always measure my hubs and rims to confirm the database. There have been irregularities.

Thanks, but all these calculators don't solve the problem....PeterRider

... for 32h hub -> 24h rim, I suspect all spokes don't have the same length.

Actually I just discovered a spoke pattern I want to do - the 2-leading 2-trailing described by Seldon Brown on
http://www.terminalvelocity.demon.co.uk/WheelBuild/
in section "other designs". Think I'll do my own interpolations and drawings to calculate lengths...

I think I get it, you're lacing a 24H rim to 32H hub and youjiggs

need the choices of spoke pattern and then lengths. I'd be interested in how this turns out.
