- Check my spoke calculations – DT 240s / LB 29er
I’m not very experienced with using the online spoke calculators (last time I did this was back in the days of having a special TI calculator with an installed program for this).
Need to replace a couple of the drive side spokes on my wheels. They are 2013-era Light Bicycle 29er hookless rims (27W-24D) with an ERD of 592mm according to LB, on DT Swiss 240s 6-bolt hubs.
Does my calculation of 287 for both sides seem correct?Posted 1 month agospeccyguyMember
You can pick your DT hubs from the drop down and manually enter the ERD. Looks like 287 is correct.Posted 1 month agomattyfezMember
IIRC my lb’s (26ers) were an odd length.
Got them factory built in China on pillar aero x spokes.
When I snapped a few due to a derailleur hitting them, I took it to the LBS but the correct size pillar spokes were going to take a while to get hold of, so I opted to get the wheel rebuilt on DT spokes which were more easily obtainable in the correct size.Posted 1 month ago
Took the opportunity to swap the nipples to black brass rather than ally at the same time.
Freespoke suggests 287mm too but that didn’t account for the erd difference @TrevorB mentions. What is LB short for?Posted 1 month ago
