found all the spoke lengths for the straight pull spokes required to build up my pulstar hubs.
it must be the only place in the world with such in depth info on long discontinued products! :D
the guy who's building the wheels for me at my lbs still thinks they are crap though.
he asked me yesterday if i would stop bringing all this old tat in for him to build up or fit to my bikes :(
the fool! :wink:
