    Default 32-spoke 19" Rims - Do they exist?

    So I'm in the process of trying to find a 32-sponke, 19-inch front rim that I can re-lace using the existing 32 spoke hub on my 48. Am I searching for a fucking unicorn or am I just an idiot? If anyone has a more cost effective way of throwing a 19" rim up front on a 2010 48 I'd love to hear it because I'm at a loss for the moment. Thanks in advance.

    Well shit. I apparently have feeble google-fu and a mental handicap. Thanks for the help dude, it's much appreciated however simple it may have been.

    Alright continuation on this topic, what spokes would work for what I have in mind, or do I need to get custom ones to make this rim:

    whats stock? 16? then you'd need spokes 1.5" longer for a 19.

    That only works if it where radially laced. As soon as angles come into play it isnt that linear.

    Magically worked for me stock triumph lacing, 18 to 19 in the rear 19 to 21 in the front. Got the info from a local guy that worked at buchanans for over 20 years.

    Theres adjustments on the threads obviously, all I meant is to not just take that as gospel. If I run a virtual wheel layout I can get a differance of quite a bit less, on a 7" hub for example it shows up as about 1.23". That 1/4" could quite easily be popping his tube.......

    Just throwing this out there....look up "Excel Takasago" 32 spokes on ebay. I love the look, they come in black, silver, gold, and blue and are really reasonable used and top out at one-fifty new, shipped. I've seen them shipped for fifty. I think they come in 32 and 36 spoke, you could lace it to a 36 spoke wargasser if wanted as well.

    Yeah but would those lace okay into the stock 32-spoke hub on my 48?
