View Full Version : Spoke Length - Can someone dbl check me

09-10-2010, 02:25 PM
Trying to calculate the length of the spokes I need.

26" rim (ALEX DM18 26", 36hole)
546 ERD
36 spoke

hub dia: 2.5"
hole dia: 2 1/8" (2.125")
spoke hole: 1/8" (.125")

When I try I get a spoke length of 260.6. Hate to order the wrong size!

Thanks for the assist.

A guaranteed double check for you -- take your stuff into your local bike shop (LBS) and have them measure/check it out for you. That way you have a real live human to yell at if they get it wrong (they won't).

Gonzo, this is the best link I have found, the maths is intense but the lenghts are exact
