Example text

A wheelbuilder can be master of his trade, but in the end, the quality of his work still depends on the selection of the rim. Rims, even though they are from the same company, the same model and the same quality, still have subtle differences. When they leave the production lines, rims are not radially circular. The rim profile is extruded from flat rod, cooled over rollers, cut to size, turned into the actual rim shape and finally their ends are joined. The rims are often not even perfectly flat.

We mechanics simply abhor too short or extending threads. Working out the correct spoke length used to be a game of chance. Time-consuming, complicated formula were hardly ever used and, instead, you just selected a certain length according to your experience and - if you were lucky - you got it right first time. On bad days you spent ages trying and testing two or three other lengths. But lately there's been a small boom in this area. Numerous systems using a pocket calculator or a personal computer take all the headache out of the job and get it right every time.

Since then I work with a tensiometer 900 - 1,000 Newtons on the front wheel (200 - 225 lbs. 1,000 - 1,100 Newtons on the right-hand side of the rear wheel (225 - 250 lbs. and only 600 - 700 Newtons on the left-hand side of the rear wheel (135 - 160 lbs. 2248 lbs.. The tension of the spokes on the left-hand side of the rear wheel cannot be increased because we're already at the limit on the right. If we were 10 try and increase the tension, the rim would be pulled out of the wheel center towards the left.
