Spoke calculator
« on: Jul 19, 2007, 20:10 »
Does anyone know a spoke calculator that is fairly simple to use, but still has quite common rims and hubs such as DMR and Halo listed on it. Have tried some of them but they either dont have the required components or you have to have the hub and rim dimensions,

Any links to good sites would be great

Ive had a butchers on DT swiss and cant find Halo etc listed as a brand so by the looks of it, you will have to select 'user defined' and enter all the info seperately. If your looking to build a new set of wheel/s, take it to your lbs (local bike shop) and they should be able to do it for you, i.e, make the calculations and supply the correct spokes.

www.dtswiss.com and look up the Halo ERDs on http://www.halorims.com


Little bit of common sense goes a long way :P

Yeh thats fine, but i dont know how to work out some of the hub stuff, such as: No. of intersections, Pitch circle diameter, Flange distance

But otherwise thanks for your help

Number of insertions would be 3 cross which your standard wheel has, basically how many times the spokes overlap each over.

Oh sorry forgot to mention that flange distance is the the distance from flange to flange. The flange is where the spokes go by the way.

Yeah I worked that out but was then slightly confused when there was a box for left and right side flanges. Should i just put the same measurement in both of them?

Oh sorry dude, ignore what i said about flange distance  :P. This was copied from the dt swiss site itself ...
'the flange distance left, respectively right, describes the distances of the flange of the centerline of wheel (center-to-flange).'

its all explained in the instructions on the DT site .. a read of them would explain everything

PCD is the distance between 2 opposing holes drilled into the flange for the spokes to go through

I have got the correct spoke lengths for the rear wheel now and i have built it up and all looks great.

Its just the front wheel - chainreaction said i needed 236mm spokes so i bought some. These do not fit and i am 100% positive that i have laced them correctly. They think that both sides should have the same size spokes but i believe this is wrong as the dmr hub has different sized flanges.
