Hello, Baron! As I said a few times - you are master in everything done until now! No doubt that entire construction should be on the same level. Excellent information (text, photos, sketches, films) about your wheel-construction. Also, a nice workbench that could be just a dream for me - no free space for one even if I could build it. Regards, Zoran

Curt, You just gave us answer on questions that I want to ask! I know that there are instructions for lasing the wire-spoked wheels and formulas for choosing length of spokes. However, it is much better if we could see that in practise. As I understand, beside diameter of rim and diamter of hub (circle lines where are the holes for spokes - important is the width of hub? If so, we could buy spokes of appropriate length (or we have them) and then construct hub with proper diameter? Regards, Zoran

Comment by Curt Belshe
The manual method I described above came within 1% of the measurement in the spoke calculator (http://ebikes.ca/tools/spoke-calc.html). Don't mistake this for any expertice on my part. I just doing this as I go along. I have a good feeling about being able to do this but don't let that make you think that I am an expert in any way. After I get the spokes I just ordered I will procede to lace up my very first wheel. (Of course I will finish prepping, painting, and assembling the hub before I actually get to lace up a wheel.) Don't hold your breath. This is going to take me a while....

Curt, being pensioner and not building CK now (maybe later one motorised quadricycle for two, after this one pedal-powered), I have a lot of free time to follow projects of active people, even if they are not experts (as you said). But, from persons like you it could be learnt more then from self-proclamed and even real experts. Maybe you know for that, but ATMOIC-ZOMBI had nice "tutorials", and between them one about 3-cross wheel lacing. Maybe, it could be useful (for my taste, it is much better than some other on internet). Here is web-link: http://www.atomiczombie.com/Tutorial%20-%203%20Cross%20Wheel%20Lacing%20-%20Page%201.aspx ... Then, there is one about hub making, but much simpler (quite rude), then your wonderful designed and made hubs: http://www.atomiczombie.com/Tutorial%20-%20No%20Lathe%20Trike%20Hubs%20-%20Page%201.aspx ... I will repeat my comments at your thread if you do not mind. Regards, Zoran

I will follow your (slow) work with interest! Until now, I could see that you know very well what you are working! I am sure that you will have great succes in alternative apporach to wheel issues! Regards, Zoran
