Hey Jay...

Seriously - the manual is a great tool...but if you notice, they provide the formula in the back for a reason - it is much more precise than the pages which are better for estimating.

Here are links to three files on my website:

http://www.mrrabbit.net/SPOKE.CPP http://www.mrrabbit.net/SPOKE.OBJ http://www.mrrabbit.net/SPOKE.EXE

All three must be dld and kept to abide by my free use license.

Use the ERD's and Hub specs provided by the manual. However, do one side of a wheel at a time using my program.

1. Open a DOS (Command Prompt) Window. 2. CD to where the executable is... 3. "SPOKE.EXE" [Enter] 4. Carefully follow the prompts entering values to the nearest .5mm. 5. Round the result down for single wall - up is okay for double wall.

If using 1.8mm spokes in holes for 2.0mm - subtract another .5mm. If using 2.0mm spokes in holes for 2.3mm - do the same.

The SPOKE.CPP file contains my free unaltered use license for all who want to use it. Used to have a web version that graphically showed how to measure with fill in fields - just haven't go it back up yet.

Good Luck!
