@ The ‘Bicycle Wheel’ is a book for every cyclist, from novice rider to experienced wheel builder, going beyond the most commonly asked questions. This volume answers questions such as: Should I use low- or high-flanged hubs for touring * Should I spoke crossed-four or crossed-three? Are radially spoked wheels stiffer than crossed-four? * How can I build a 32-spoke crossed-two wheel? * Should I use butted or straight sookes? * Does tying and soldering give a rough ride?
Based on years of experience, the author has divided the book into three parts. Part One, Theory, explains how wheels respond to loads. It discusses the merits of various designs and components, and explains what causes failures. Part Two, Practice, gives a step-by-step guide for building front and rear wheels and wheels with different patterns and numbers of spokes. Part Three, Data, contains test results and formulas for computing spoke lengths and other wheel dimensions.

In this tutorial we show you how to lace the drive side spokes of a rear bicycle wheel. It’s important to remember that on the rear wheel the drive side spokes are slightly shorter than the non-drive side, due to the dish of the wheel. You should also prep your spokes with linseed oil or spoke prep before lacing. When lacing the drive side spokes start at the spoke hole next to the valve stem hole. Make sure it is a hole that is drilled towards the drive side of the hub. Most rims have slightly offset drilling, so the spoke holes will angle slightly toward one side of the rim or the other.
When lacing, each set of spokes will be placed every fourth hole. So when lacing the outy drive side, you place a spoke every fourth hole on the rim, with three holes in between.
