    Spoke Length Question

    I'm building a front wheel. Using the hub from a 26er wheel to a 27.5 rim.
    Both rims and hub are 24 hole.
    Both old and new rims are straight-pull at the rim.
    For spoke length, is it as simple as original spoke length + difference of new rim size?

    It isn't exactly that because the angle of spoke entry makes a triangle, but the difference is small enough that it should work.

    You need to look at the difference in ERD, not the diff in tire size.
    Do the math.

    I guess that's why he said rim size not tire size.
