    I have a set of Industry N9ne wheels and I am replacing the rims.(dented) They have Sun SOS rims and I am replacing them with Sun SingleTracks. The ERDs are 2mm difference. The spoke calculator claims the only difference for spoke length is 1mm per spoke on drive and non drive side. I dont want to spend hundreds of dollars to replace the I9 spokes, can I get away with that minor difference in length?

    is it 1mm shorter or longer? to be safe, i would hope that the spokes are a bit long. 1mm shouldnt make a difference, but i will not be held responsible.

    I'm pretty sure that as long as your spokes are within 3mm they are ok to use.

    thats how it would work with a standard wheel, with nipples. i am not sure that the i9's work the same way.

    Using the old spokes??? If so, youll be just fine. You have probably stretched the spokes more than 1mm already. Just tension it up properly and dont look back.

    I think you mean nipples, last time i checked they had spokes

    I figured I would be ok, I normally dont reuse spokes but in this case I cannot afford to replace the spokes at like $6 a piece. I will be rebuilding the hubs to new rims and spokes next year but am hoping to get through the year with just new rims.

    Thanks for the advice

    The spokes have more depth of threads than a standard spoke and nipple interface, i think that I will be fine. thanks everyone, i will let you know when I get it laced up how its goes

    You should be fine, I am running syncros 32's and they are 1mm shorter. I called I9 and they said as long as its within 1-2mm its fine.

    The threads on the current rim are most of the way into the hub, very little exposed to the outside
