Hi all,
anyone who knows if you can get spokes that will fit a tioga front hub (straight pull)? How do you calculate spoke length for this very nice hub?
Any help would be great! :lol:

I'm pretty sure CannondaleKing built mine using the straight ended spoke as used for a Pulstar hub, I think these were the only option at the time, however......he had to drill the holes in the hub out by 0.2mm or something silly because the spokes were too thick....not a job he enjoyed :lol:

pm him and I'm sure he can point you in the right direction or even build the wheel for you.

they can be done, but I didn't. when I heared that you need either custom spokes from DT or titan spokes, I decided not to buy the tioga hub (both options are very expensive). Those hubs are cheap for a reason, apparently... They look very cool though, maybee even as a paper weight :lol:

Tis a shame, i bet if the spokes were available these would be silly money hubs.

Thread re-resurrection.

Does anyone have advice on calculating spoke length for a straight pull spokes for these Tioga hubs? I have a source of spokes, but can't figure out how to calculate what length I'll need.
