    Marge Lite Offset Spoke Length on Pugsley

    Finally decided to upgrade the Pugsley with some lighter wheels. I've never had to calculate offset hub/rim spokes before. Would someone with experience building these could please confirm that I'm entering the dimensions correctly from the attached image?

    I haven't received the rims or the hubs yet, so just going from the dimensions I found online. I'll measure everything once I get it all in.

    Both wheels will be Marge Lite rims with Hoozer rear hubs. Sapim Race spokes and brass nipples.

    Thanks!

    Just found this post Building a Pugsley fatbike wheel

    Looks like I didn't enter -12.5 for the hole offset in the original specifications. That was default on the freespoke calc. Are both positive values on that for non offset wheels?

    This seems better:

    To answer your question, yes. The image in your first post is what the spokes would look like if you laced your wheel using spoke holes on both sides of the rim. The values in the second image are right on the money.

    That length sounds right off the top of my head. The second pic is correct.
    What hub are you using?

    I'm using the KOOZER hubs. There's a long thread on them here:
    http://forums.mtbr.com/wheels-tires/...60-919051.html

    They're pretty light at ~305g and cheap at $60. The 5 degree of engagement is also nice. Good thing the Pugsley can use two identical wheels if a one hub doesn't hold up.
