Excel Spokes

Recommended Posts

Building a new wheel with Excel rim & spokes using a new Honda hub on a 03 CR250. The Excel spokes apear to bee about 8 - 10 mm to short. Has anyone ever had this problem before?

I'm pretty sure. I'm following the pattern of the original wheel and had no trouble with the front.

There's the problem.

Back wheel is probably different pattern.

I saw this discussed before on here not long ago.

Better do a search.

I actually reviewed some of the earlier postings before starting this one. The pattern is pretty obvious and only goes togeather one way or thing just wont fit nice.

Must be wrong spokes then.

Thanks ridngslikecrack,  I searched until I found a different pattern. Worked perfectly.

Glad you figured it out.

that's why I don't like lacing wheels. Lol
