One end of the spoke has a 90-degree bend through the hole in the drawplate, and the other end has a cap through the spoke hole in the rim. We can go through adjust the tension of the spokes to adjust whether the wheel of the bicycle rotates in the same plane. In this way, our bicycles will be more stable.
Different sizes of rims, different hole numbers, and different spoke weaving methods may lead to different lengths of spokes. Therefore, we need to know the following knowledge when purchasing spokes.
Many riders often ask these questions: I am a 26-inch bike, how long spokes should I buy? I’m a 700C road bike, how long spokes do I need to buy? I’m giant / Merida, how long spokes do I need?
The simplest way is to actually measure. Generally, the measured length error is about 2mm, which can be used. If the spokes are short, use a longer cap to make up for it. If the spokes are long enough, the exposed part of the rim can be bent and not pushed to the inner tube.
The spokes are flat, round, round, and divided into elbow and straight-pull. Flat spokes are all straight-pull.
Common bicycles include 14G (2mm), 15G (1.8mm), 13G (2.3mm), 16G (1.6mm), variable diameter bars, etc.
45# steel-304 stainless steel, etc.
The factors that determine the length are the rim size and rim height, the single/double rim, the ear size of the flower drum, the spoke braiding method, and the offset length.
Six-four cross-editing method (the 1st and 6th crosses, the middle interval is 4) as an example:
9). If you use one specification of spokes, it’s OK, but it’s a bit more troublesome to adjust the wheelset.
