Spoke Calculation question(2 posts)

Hi. I was wondering if someone could help me out with a spoke calculation. Damon Rinard's calculator doesn't include these rims, so I was hoping someone else could help me out with the spoke length. Here are the specs:
-front wheel: 28 hole American Classic Micro hub, 2X lacing, Mavic GL330 tubular rims
-rear wheel: 28 hole American Classic Ultralight cassette, 3X lacing on each side, old style (395 gram) Mavic GP4 tubular rim.

Thanks for your help!

The easiest thing to do is to call Mavic and ask them to give you the "ERD" (effective rim diameter) dimension. They'll know what it is. Then just plug that number into whatever spoke calculator you are using.
