    Rolf Dolomite Disc - spoke tension?

    Is there somebody, who knows recommended spoke tension for front wheel Rolf Dolomite disc? IŽd like to exchange all spokes on my wheel which run already more than 10 000 miles.

    Thanks
    Mike

    24 spokes right?
    My guess is 110-140, not sure though, never used Rolfs and have only seen them once.
    If you can measure the tension before you replace them that would tell you what its at now and what to set the new ones at.

    Thank you

    OK, you are right. More-less. The question is, how mouch is the original tension changed durinng aging and also how much does it change when some of old spokes broke.
    Anyhow. Thanks for your answer.

    Mike the tension shouldnt have changed much at all.
    I would think maybe 5-10kg max.
    The best way to find out would be to contact Rolf and ask them what it should be.
    It probably wont do you much good finding out they use 140kg if you
    dont have a tension meter though. You could aproximate the tension,
    ride the rebuilt wheel, and up the tension until the flex dissapears and
    you feel comfortable with the feel of it.

    I would be the tension is probably the exact same as what cross max use.
    I think they are both 24spk.

    Good info

    Hi THEBRONZE.

    What you said is logical. I discussed this item also whith people who knows Crossmaxes and they recommended the same.
    By the way: To contact Rolf company (which designed Dolomite Disc some years ago) is not possible. When you search for "Rolf Dolomite Disc" it points you to a new products and new company and have no information-even no contacts to old stuff.

    Once more: thanks a lot and have nice rides
    Mike
