Spokes for A/C 101 rim with DT Swiss hub?
Building a new rear wheel and need to know spoke length.Hub is 240s rim is new American Classic 101 29er.Also any suggestions for spoke type want a light build.
You need to know the measurements of the hub (from DT website, you can use their spoke calc) and the ERD of the rim (advertised as 600mm but better to measure yourself).
If cost is no object look at Sapim CX Rays or DT Aerolite for strength, stiffness, and light weight. If you want a more traditional (and cheaper) spoke, the Wheelsmith DB14's are real nice and a bit lighter than competing DT and Sapim spokes.
