Topic - Spoke replacing - Length? OK, I give up!

JohnnyW - on 25 Nov 2012
I get through a prodigious amount of spokes whilst commuting on my hybrid through the horrendous quality roads of Stirlingshire and West Lothian.

I get fed-up of taking my wheels to my not-so-local shop for replacement and truing, so decided to get some spokes and do it myself.

Jesus! How complicated?!

I have AlexrimsDH19 rims which I found the spec for, but Shimano FH-RM65 hub, for which I can only find the OLN dimension. If I really need to measure all the other dimensions, it is impossible with the wheel intact I would say. None of the on-line calculators seem to have my hub.

Is it really this involved ffs? The wee chap in Whitburn that does 'em for me (near work you see) doesn't seem that, er, detailed.

Any advice?
