go to the g-sport website and i forget what its under, lacing or something i dont remember, and there is a link to take you to a website where you can calculate it. but i mean i cant even understand the damn directions to calculate the length, so if anything call up a mailorder and tell them the rims and hubs your using and they should know what you need and send them right away

to be honest you really need to just take it to a bike shop, and uinless you have a truing machine, you will pretty mush have to anyway, to get the rim true.

yeah they are just spokes they come in many sizes and a shop would either have them or would have to order them. but go to a shop that does bmx too whether its just haros or all other brands

i was going to my bikeshop here today
i asked if they had spokes for 20 inch
they said you have to calculate it :eh: what a service
i told i was gonna buy some new rims soon
then they said it was really hard to spoke yourself :eh:
that aint a answer on my question ah well i think im gonna calculate it tomorrow and if i cant calulate it ive got an problem but i think it will work
most riders ride 180mm i think
