Just a quick behind the scenes view of a few of the steps that go into building a custom wheel. Though I spec'd this rim, I still measure the ERD (effective rim diameter) to verify that the manufacture produced what I spec'd. This is a critical measurement, it is one of the determinants of the eventual spoke length!
The next measurement that I make is the spoke hole offset measurement. Basically, it's the measurement from left spoke hole centerline to the right spoke hole centerline. This measurement only happens on pretty wide rims where the left and right side spokes do not share a common centerline.
That's all for today!
