    I used a couple of spoke length calculators, and questioned the 242 / 244 numbers, so it's good to see them confirmed by someone who knows what the hell they are doing. I can't wait to order these rims up. I do like my BG's white rims, but these carbons with some purple Fatsno hubs are gonna be so fly.

    Confirmed? Kinda--by using the supplied ERD. Pending actual measurement, of course.

    And for which hubs were those measurements calculated?

    Wa-co, note that there are a few different versions of fatsno hubs and each has different measurements. Along with 503mm ERD and 3mm spoke bed offset, here are the numbers I plugged into freespoke. Nextie-Bike carbon rims-image.jpg

    Did somebody say yellow ?

    Guilty... yellow rockets are on the way to oz as we speak.

    Im currently away on a riding trip so cant punch in anymore numbers for spokes, Maxwell from Nextie confirmed 503mm ERD, has anyone else's calcs came out with 244mm spokes for 135/170mm fatsnos ?

    cheers

    Well, at least you posted the spoke lengths for your top-secret unnamed hubs laced to these nextie rims.

    It turns out to have been the right call to order from Nextie and not wait for my pre-order from synergy sports / xm iplay carbon wheels. The xmiplay 80mm carbon wheels won't be available because "a customer from the US signed a contract with our factory for the 80mm rims, we can not sell the 80mm rims to any other customer from the US any more".

    Mine came in this AM. Had to finish several customers wheels before I could open the box and get to work. Er, play.

    I measured the ERD at 505. That was averaged from 4 measurements on each rim--I think the raw # was 505.2.

    Used DT AeroLite's on the build because that's what I had extra of in my 'junk box'. Tough to get two tools *and* two hands in there--combo of deep section rim on a 26" hoop, along with (of course) fat fingers.

    Balanced out and stress relieved, then taped and valved. Gotta feed and walk the hound before I can fiddle with tubelessness.

    Doesn't look like the design permits it.

    Only carbon offset rims I've seen are Sarma (now outrageously priced at $1200/pair) and the Light Bicycle rims.

    I really want LB to do some ~70mm hookless (should give similar tyre profile to 80mm rim) rims at ~550gm...

    Might order tonight pending your overall thoughts of these and maybe a pic or two.

    Might have to wait until the rims arrive... i have no reason to question MC's measurement but 244mm spokes are basically useless if they are the wrong size. Most places don't even sell them.

    Measurements on 135mm/170mm fatsnos.

    A 3mm spoke bed offset reduces the required spoke length by about 0.4mm by my calculations. For calculators such as the DT swiss one pictured above, that don't allow for spoke bed offset, I assume it is valid to subtract the 3mm spoke bed offset from each flange distance number.

    Now that customers are receiving their orders, Nextie should update their website to no longer say "pre-order". I can't wait to get mine.

    But if the ERD is bigger than spec'd, hmmm, my spokes were already on the short side due to ordering even mm instead of odd mm length. I could have a pile of useless spokes.

    I used the same DT spoke calc and the same 505 ERD and, for my hubs, the calc came out spot-on.

    Tubelessness has, thus far, been a failure. I can get the beads to seat just fine, even with a floor pump, but air is escaping from beneath the beads faster than I can put it in, even with a compressor. Have already added a few layers of tape to snug-up the fit, but the end result is the same--no bueno on tubeless.

    I have laced the Nextie Prototype rim with Hope Fatsno 190 hubs and used 240mm spokes, since I were not able to get 244 right now. 240 is defintely on the (to) short side, I can still see the spoke threads, but 244 should fit fine or perfect. I will go for 244 for my production set.
