Want to learn how to calculate BMX spoke length?
If you’re building up some new wheels, you’re going to need new spokes to go with them. Since every hub and every rim is a little different, the length of spokes are not always exactly the same, so there are a range of spoke sizes available. Lux BMX put together this fresh video showing you how to calculate the spoke length you need whether it’s your front wheel or rear wheel. Hit play and take it all in.
We do have a BMX Spoke Calculator on our website, but unfortunately we aren’t always able to get the hub or rim specs we need to update or get you an exact measurement from brands. This video above should help you out if you can’t find your combination you need.
“At LUXBMX our customer service team hear from so many of you every day! We love hearing from our customers but we also hope we can teach you guys a few things along the way.
In this week’s Frequently asked Fridays Ev discusses how to calculate your spoke length for your next wheel build, what the term ERD refers too and some little tricks to do all this.” – Lux BMX
