These are tubeless compatible do they have traditional spoke access holes?

Well more questions. I used the DT Swiss spoke calculator and input the hubs dimensions that I measure myself to make certain. It is a basic Novotec f842sb hub. According the the calculations it says 282 for DS and 287 for NON DS. That seems to be more than usual of 2 mm difference. I am sure of my measuring does that seem reasonable to have 5mm difference?

Deacon Mark
IIRC, its around 281/282 3X NDS on a Shimano Ultegra hub with the DT460s. You're numbers are way off unless that Novatec is a high-low flange hub, and even if it were, it would have to have a really low NDS. Could you send us a link to the hub. Those numbers don't pull anything up.

2 cross my rim my bad

I don't know the hub but suspect the spoke calc is wrong because of some input error. I could see getting that kind of length disparity on a high-low hub or a hub with different cross-patterns side to side like 3X DS and 2X NDS.

i did a recalculation and I get 276 for DS and 280 Non DS. I am sure the calculations are correct this time. I went back through the hub remeasured all points. Without taking off the spokes and trying to measure the difference on the spokes now they are pretty close to 4mm difference. I wish I had a source to buy spokes as needed not in crazy lots of 50 or 100 and I just need standard DB steel spokes. I think Wheelsmith are fine but I don't even know if they are in business. I tried googling all the various places for spokes and what a crap shoot. I think this covid crap has everything on back order in the bike world. My normal source for wheelsets is all out. I wonder if Andrew is building wheels for customers like mad. I prefer to build my own wheels I just get weird on spoke calculations. You enter all the data an yet at times I think the final product might suggest a different length even if they worked fine. I am not sure how OCD one should be with spoke calcs. I don't build

enough wheels to know if you round up or down? What if you fall in between on an odd number go up or down?

Deacon Mark

We're building wheels at about the same rate as ever, not more.

Since wheelbuilding has become a rare arcane art (and a
complete mystery to most modern LBS) spoke distribution is
abysmal. This has been a trend for years and it's getting,
as you note, worse. Moreover with declining volume and
expanded selection (double inventory with normal spokes and
black tinted spokes, double again for aero shape, etc. Even
nipples come in useful and then black, aluminum, star shape,
on to ridiculous variety) prices here have become
unbelievable. Unbelievable in that I can't imagine paying
these rates, especially for orders received missing 25% of
the ordered lengths. A relatively boring commodity has
become a pricey scavenger hunt. We gave up and import spokes
directly, which is a lot of money tied up in inventory. The
alternate, with unreliable supply, is lost customers.
