BHS has discontinued TB25 so not on their site anymore.
It's 592
Less is more.

Nah, unmounted my wheels today. Measured ERD is 588-589.
It's a spoke cutting and threading day ... :)

Can someone help me with spoke length? I'm trying to build up a set of Flo 45 rims with Bitex RAF10/RAR9 (20/24). ERD is 548.4mm. Radial front and 2 cross rear.

I've tried plugging the numbers into different calculators online and I get differing numbers from all of them...

Always use spokecalc. Download the spreadsheet from Sheldon brow bar site. It never lies unless you put the wrong lengths in.

Same math algorithms as calc.. more user friendly.. can input variations on the cross..nice for figure more complex lacings.

HI again all builders ,
Question (sorry if it's been covered before): What ERD number do I use for Shimano internal nipples on a Shimano C75 tubular build ?
Do I have to add a few mm's to the ERD, since the spokes have to enter the rim more than a standard nipple ? By how many mm's ? ...
I use Spokalc spreadsheet.
Thanks :beerchug: !
Louis :)
