- Spoke length calculator help please
So I have an Alfine 11 hub and a mavic xm119 29er rim to build up. 93mm flanges on the hub and 595mm erd for the rim. 36H building 3 cross. I THINK the spoke length I need is 278mm. Could someone who knows what they are doing and has a few minutes spare check for me please before I buy the spokes. This will be my first venture into wheelbuilding ! Thanks in advancePosted 1 year agodaernMember
You may find that the 278mm spokes will be a bit long for the right hand side and won’t tighten enough, so I’d drop down a size (277 or 276mm depending on make) for the RHS spokes.

Having been caught out a couple of times, and given that published data from different sources can differ, I would suggest that it’s wise to take your own measurements. It’s the only way to be sure you’ve got the right measurement – or if you’ve got the wrong measurement, you’ve no-one else to blamePosted 1 year ago
