So I've decided to relace my back wheel to a 21" rim on my Honda CL360. I got the hub and rim ready to be mated but have no idea how to figure out the spoke lengths to get them ordered. Anyone have experience with this ? I've searched and just found bicycle spoke calculators online and otherwise just tutorials about rebuilding stock wheels with same size spokes.

Any help would be much appreciated.


Thanks. :killerjob:

UPDATE: I called Buchanan Spokes and the girl there was very nice and anwsered me with a very obvious question. Add 1.5" to the original length which equals the 3" difference in wheel size. Easy as that. I could've thought of that too but was afraid that it wouldn't really be that easy! :banghead:

Are they making you a set? I wanna lace my stock brake into my 21" front.

Yeah, I think they will have to actually. I first figured I'll ebay some after I know my sizes but all 21" spokes I've found online are for MX hubs and don't have same 'elbows' in the spokes. I got quoted $112 for 36 spokes with nipples.
