How to: Spokes

 

SPOKES & NIPPLES

Most of the wheels today are composed of a rim, hub and 36 spokes + nipples, however some uses 48 spokes for higher strength and stability. Common spokes lengths are 184mm, 186mm, 188mm and more, although every other combination of RIM + HUB needs different spokes length and you need to measure it/or use the "spokes length calculator" to know what length do you need. Some riders uses Titan spokes to lower the weight of their wheels but it's more expensive and not ideal for street riding.

One of the most difficult parts of building up your bike is lacing up the wheels. I mean, once you learn the procedure it is not so hard but as far as we know, some riders never learn it and rather leave for the specialist.
