Ay up,

I have a lovely Clark Kent pineapple hub that I have found use for at last, I know a few of you have these too (cos I sold you them!) just wondered if you've had them built up/built them up yourself, and if so if you'd be willing to do another?

TIA! theboy

I had a snowflaked one, I bought the wheel on a marin off the bay. It looked awesome.

Cannondale King is a wheel builder and was going to do mine at one point as was Gil but i opted for a local guy to do it instead to save on postage. If your doing it radially the same as mine you'll need a couple of different lengths of spokes. Does 248 for the inners sounds right? i think thats the shortest length you can buy, at least thats what i think the dude said

I would hazzard a guess that if your doing radial spoke pattern on a wheel that they would all be the same length. Well that's at least what I've done before in the past.
