Thanks for the comments/tips AmFr
I'm hoping it would be enjoyable rather than doing my head in, we'll see lol
bm0p': sorry didnt reply earlier
i have the same hub dimensions as you for the 4500, but I got an ERD of 600 http://www.spacycles.co.uk/products.php ... 2b0s116p67
they could be wrong of course
3 cross pattern, 36 spokes
You advise using plain guage on the drive side? was thinking of triple butted all over. Also, the book I read mentions fitting washers, in practice to many people do this?
Above measurements may need to be changed though as having a slight rethink, i have some alex ta19 front wheels in the shed, barely used but with quando hubs. might turn one into a rear and upgrade hub spokes on the other, they are non eyeletted but might be ideal as a first time project and save a couple of quid, need to double check the spoke count though and see if the erd is on the sticker as not online.
If our measurements match based on the erd I was using then it looks like i'm on the right track.
Thanks for the time
