    So I am building up atomlab pimplites (24") to a profile non disk front and mini rr (36h, 3 cross). I have looked on line for a calculator, no luck, I've called my LBS and several mailorder places, no luck, can anyone help me with the sizes that I need, please!

    Should be on QBP's wheel builder...you will need to grab the Atomlab dimensions though.

    bikelog did not have the correct hub measurements, nor rims.

    If anyone has this set up, or at least the hub can you post the measurements.

    I know atomlab has their wheel measurements listed on their website, now all you need is profile's numbers.

    Doesn't atomlab do their spokes funny vs. other companies? Or is that only in regards to their oversized nipples (wow I laughed in my head at that)?

    Perfect, thanks guys!

    FYI, the front is 229.4, rr drive side is 228.6, and non drive side is 230.8.

    Maybe I could just get a bunch of 230's and be good to go :-) Or maybe not.

    congrats on scorin' those digits for the build.


    but... alright, call me a leach...

    anybody got any clue on the specs for a G-sport marmoset hub?

    or how about a 24" alienation runaway rim?


    and the biggest question, how do you factor in if you are lacing your spokes to cross like the wheelbuild on a g-sport Ribcage rim, do you know what I'm saying? runaway is similar.... any help here is appreciated.

    haven't got my hands on one yet.... that's what has been holding me up so long on building this front wheel.... was gonna just go with the ol' BFR or maybe a rhyno or pimplite, but I figured it's winter here anyway and I can't ride, so I'll just wait for this rim to come along, no hurry other than in my head.
    apparantly the beginning of Feb is when the 24's will be available from them, at least according to an email from a tech guy from their site...

    you usually get the hubs and tims and bring them to you lbs and they figure out the spoke lengths

    Maybe you do.

    Grom, I've wrenched for over a decade at LBS, I know as much if not more then they do about what I'm doing. Seems silly not order all the stuff at the same time as well, don't you think?

    You can figure it out with a formula or a calculator that either takes measurements from the rim and hub or from a data base that already has all of the information. Sadly, with some of these little companies the information isn't all available. It all worked out though, just had to work a little harder to get the information.

    Every person in the world has a spoke calculator. They just don't know it. And deminsions on hubs and the ERD of a rim is all common information found on most company websites or on BTI.

    It's all common information that is rarely used.
