    SS Same spoke Length F&R

    Just wondering if anyone has come across a set of hubs that would use the same spokes (length) on the front and rear wheels? I am wanting to build a dish less rear and just thought a higher flange front might work out. Thanks in advance.

    Front wheels use different spoke lengths on each side.

    I built a set of Chris King Iso discs to Bontrager Duster OSB rims and they used the same spoke length all around. The off-set rim is key.

    Not sure if they are available separately, but the new SRAM Rise/Roam/Rail wheels have the hubs designed so that the spoke length is exactly the same. Might be an option...

    Same spoke length doesn't necessarily mean dishless.

    Thanks so much for the replies. Thinking about building my own wheels and didn't realize that front disks have a small amount of dish although I have a Maverick front that appears to be symmetrical. Guess the extra 10mm width is enough to make everything fit. Anyone know of any 100mm disk hubs that don't need the dish? I admit to symmetry issues but I like the idea of having one length spoke for a bunch of wheels.

    No there are not any dishless 100mm front disc hubs and again, that doesn't mean there aren't hubs that you can use the same spoke length on.

    Spokes breaking should be an incident reserved for weird crashes... I wouldnt plan any build around the idea that you'll be trashing spokes. Having 4 different or same lengths isnt a benefit or downside.

    But like mf said, same length doesnt meant dishless. Lots of hubs use the same spoke length and are dished.
