    abbah babbah

    im gettin a ringle abbah rear hub for 120 off jenson. my wheel now is an s-type rim with 14gauge spokes on some shimano hub. does anyone know if i can keep the spokes and re-use them or do i need to buy new ones.(do you know what gauge spokes abbah hubs use?) also, what do you guys think of these hubbs?

    I always buy new spokes for every New wheel. They will prob. work but it's not a good idea.

    A Ringle Rear came with my frame. I was ahhhh man a Ringle. I just heard people talk mad smack about them. But It's the best Hub I've use yet. Had way less trouble then with my Hadleys.

    You can buy different gauged spokes regardless (to my knowledge, there's probably an exception though...) of the hub/rim choice. What you need to do is buy the correct length spokes for the hub/rim choice that you've got. I'd be willing to bet that the Shimano/S-Type spoke length is different than the Abbah/S-Type spoke length.

    Check out the spoke calculator on DT-Swiss's website, that usually gives accurate information from my experience with it.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    Also check MTX or Eight Track for rims, they're the exact same. Chances are the hub profile is different, which will affect the spoke length.

    Just to be sure... Make sure the number of holes in the hub corresponds to the number of holes in your rim.
