    Alfine Measurements

    I have an Alfine hub and I would like to re-build a wheel with a Stan's rim I have just bought.
    Would anyone have measured precisely the pitch circle diameter (I don't have a tool long enough to measure it) and the flange distance to center (this I can but if you have it !!!) so that I can calculate the spoke length.
    Thanks in advance.
    Eric

    ^There is wrong information, Alfine flange diameter is 92.6mm between centers of opposite holes in the hub flange. Not 104.3 mm (its flange outside diameter).

    Edit : Its not wrong information but useles when you calculating spoke length.

    I think it is correct. When I googled it, it appeared in the results but not in the page I would subsequently open (Sheldon Brown) ???
    I believe that besides the centerlock adapter, the hub shell is identical to the Nexus.
    Anyway, I have bought the spokes and will finish the build this week-end.
