  • Where was the question in that post?

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

    Haha nice acronym, it was worth baiting you just to read that :p

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

    Doing a new/first build, that's why all the stupid questions. Currently wheels are on Formula hubs (36h) and velocity rims from a custom I bought 18 months ago as a real newbie. Probably going to sell the whole bike once I've build the new one, so won't be taking the wheels across.

  • Cool, I wouldn't put formula hubs on the new wheels though, my rear one was practically fit for the bin after 6 months, currently on Goldtecs which are doing well, Good mid-range priced hub. They've got some new ones out with some super fast ceramic bearings, phil wood are really nice also, but with the price tag to match obviously.

  • 100 Spoke FTW!

  • God I use 36 hole hubs with drilled out sun rims on my bmx with no probs. I would easily consider going to 28 on my fixed bike when the time comes to get a new wheelset, especially if you get big (heavy)aero rims. Has anyone got a link to an accurate spoke length calculator as I'm thinking about straight lacing my current 32's

  • remember bigger wheels are weaker though.

    I use this spoke calc.

  • Yeh I was thinking that, but I used to run 32's on my xc mtb no probs. I'm 12 1/2 stone (no feather weight). I dunno if my wheels stay straight enough when I re-lace them, then I'll see. Cheers for the calculator link.

    Certainly feather weight compared to me mate!

  • 32 spoke produces a symmetrical spoke pattern so adored by Frenchies and Italians

    Not using the formula, they going with the current bike when I sell. This is a fresh build, although I might take the seatpost. I'm looking at Goldtec and Velocity Deep V. Probably go 36h rear and 32 front after reading up.
