  • What are the advantage of 36 hole hub verses 32 hole (and any other variations), with regards to making up a wheel. I'm looking at getting a new set of wheels made up and am not sure what to go for. Currently have 36 hole/spokes.

    Any info is welcome to help education of a newbie.

  • Use the fucking spokes?

  • Upside The Fucking Skull is where we aim the d-lock.

  • Utilitarian threads for summer?

    D-lock? Whats with the d-lock questions dude, I think you're taking this thread off topic, if you need to discuss d-locks then you should use the fucking search.

  • Under the friendly sunshine?

  • 36 is stronger, 32 is lighter.

  • No no this is really important stuff. I reckon the main advantage of 36 is more holes in the rim makes the rim lighter, which is somewhat countered by the extra weight of four extra spokes and nipples. So actually heavier. Probably. I think.

    I got 36 rear and 32 front on a bike. I think its an important detail. No one else does. I did it because the hubs were special and I wasn't in any position to choose what holeage I have.

    So in essence, forget about it.

    If you really want to open up a can o worms, try and ask us about 40 hole rear and 32 front. I could on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on

  • Meh......I run 48 spokes front and back :)

    But you jump down steps on yours!

  • Yup :p

  • 36 holes you can lace it with crows foot.

  • Unless you're building something that is only going to be used on the track, I would just stick with 36h, the weight savings between 32 and 36 spoke are negligible, and you need all the strength you can get in a wheel if its being used on the roads.

  • Oh looks like Sheldon agrees with me to ;)
    36h+ ftw.

  • Thanks for the info. Didn't pick up the previous thread on the search.

    I'm now educated a little.

  • Out of interest, why are you replacing your current wheels?

  • 36h ftw! Stronger, stiffer, faster...

  • Stronger, stiffer, faster...

    We're talking about wheels Joe.....honestly, you dirty dirty perv.

  • 20h Front, 24h rear, carbon tubular rims, sapin spokes, ceramic bearinged hubs.

    Stuff of legends

  • 36h best for londons none too good streets

    stronger build
    weight difference i really would imagine you'd notice and if you would maybe 36 out back and 32 up front

    Where was the question in that post?

    ? <- see that.. it's the hint you were looking for. Understand The Fucking Statement :P

  • I'm with CrazyJames on this one (not in a gay way).
