Spoke holes diameter
#1
Hi,

i ordered a Aluminum rimset and i have to specify the Spoke hole diameter
im having the wheels built on Formula Th-50 hubs that take 13G 2.3 mm spokes, so the holes on the Rims must match ? Is the hole suppose to be a little larger to accomodate the Nipple ? Or is 13G Rim hole ok ?

Thanks.

Simon.

I'd contact the rim seller and tell them what you're building it up with and ask to be sure.

Finally i informed myself about the th-50, 51 from Formula and 14G is the gauge size that gives me the widest array of options, the rim as also been drilled 14G spoke wise im going for the aero spokes, if you have interest in this type of rim let me know.

Simon.
