Spoke length calculator online

Webmaster

I developed my own spoke length calculator, online in the utilities section. During validation I determined its output is identical to the popular DT Swiss calculator — to 0.1mm resolution. The intent was build a calculator with a simple interface suitable for rendering on mobile devices.

Wheelbuilding bibliography

Webmaster

These are the books I own about wheels and wheelbuilding. If you know of others, let me know.

For beginners

Brandt is canon but may be too scientific for introductory purposes. If you’re new to wheelbuilding, I recommend Musson as a first resource — inexpensive, approachable and remarkably complete. I built my first wheels using written guides so I think it’s practical and realistic.
