Spoke length calculator online


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


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