Can someone check my numbers for spokes before I order?
Rim ERD 548
Rear is 24h 2 cross
Spoke drilling diameter – 42 mm
Hub center – flange center – 32.0 mm
Front is 20h radial
Spoke drilling diameter – 34 mm
Hub center – flange center – 37 mm
My numbers come out as
Must've been asked a million times, but any truing stand recommendations for a beginner?
Thinking about getting this one: https://www.bike-discount.de/en/buy/radon-professional-wheel-truing-stand-for-qr-thru-axles-623737
That looks quite similar to the one @Hulsroy bought. Seemed really nice and well made and way better than my cheapo Tacx
I got a Park TS-8 for £50 on eBay, it is sufficient. That Radon has a lot more features though
Rear hub flanges are spaced evenly? Is it fixed?
Yes, Mack hub.
I can recommend this one:
I'm a beginner myself and have successfully built a couple of sets with it.
Thanks all for the replies.
Any experiences with Kinlin-250?
As all Kinlins. Good finish and fairly cheap. Build a couple of the 26 inch ones, can't complain, nothing to report.
A good rim is one that builds into stable wheels easily. The only kinlin I have found Fidley is the adhn. What remarkable about this kinlin like many others is how unremarkable they are. Thats good thing as there nothing to report.
I've got this one, and have been pleased with it. Needs centering out of the box, but has been a massive improvement over my old Minoura
I mainly got it as I was starting to build more thru axle hubs, and it made that far simpler to do
@TvH seems to approve also...

It's basically the park tools one but better and cheaper
I'm also on the lookout for something along these lines. Sun Rhyno Lite XL another option but would be good to hear if anyone else has any suggestions.
Anyone got an old Shimano 1055 or 1056 rear hub in decent nick? 36h. Not looking to spend more than about a tenner.
Anyone bought or handled the Halo Devaura rims? Are the logos easy to remove?
I will do in about a week, have just got a spare FH-1055 to temporarily swap the freehub over to my wheel whilst I refurb the bearings within; will swap back afterwards then you can have the hub.
Considered the logos are laser etched and the rim is anodized over i don't think it's possible or worth doing.
Especially considered , you can buy the same rims without logos in a better finish
Sure! Let me know once you're done. Cheers.
Ah they are laser etched... damn. I think I can get them for cheap. But can’t get the unbranded Kinlins for the same price
But you built me wheels with silver Halos because you couldn't get the Kinlins ;-)
In silver could be a good shout. How visible are the logos?
But that was ages ago 😭
A bit, but they're on my GF's Soma mixte, so it's not that bad. You can see them below when I borrowed them this spring and summer.
@broken_777 no worries, I've used them myself now and for a "basic" wheelset they've been really good, paired with a 23c (all I had clearance for) they give the tyre a nice profile, probably quite aero as tyres and shallow rims combo go, too.
If you want wide deepish silver rims, have you considered the Ambrosio P20? Sightly less deep than the XR31T/Halo Devaura at 27mm, but the pair I've got seem pretty decent even if I haven't actually got round to building them up yet. Available for £55 a pop here (albeit not in all drillings) or £35 a go from Spa in 20h/24h/
