Hi folks, anyone here got good info on spoking lengths.
I'm trying to build a Ringle Bubba (suspension front type) onto a Mavic 217 SUB sunset, with a 3x lacing.
I've tried checking out some spoke calulators, but don't know the tech spec of the hub!
Has anyone done this build or can you help.
Cheers alan.

ps how does one post digital images to a post?

According to http://www.geocities.com/d_halem/wheel/wheel.html for a 32 hole mavic 217 built 3 cross onto a ringle bubba front you'll need 263.5 mm spokes. Lot's more info here > http://www.sheldonbrown.com/wheelbuild.html

To post pictures either send them to me at admin@retrobike.co.uk or host them yourself and use the [ i m g ] tags like this

Hello, try the spoke calculator at www.dtswiss.com it reckons you should be using 265mm spokes if it's a bubba front hub and 264 if it's a super bubba.
