I called up danscomp and they said 194mm
Albes said 192mm
Empire said 186mm
Some online site said 188mm
And street mafia said 192mm

I got 194mmand 192mm and 188 and 186 spokes, tried them all and 194mm was too long, so was 192mm and 188 and 186 didnt work and so i got some 190 ones from a friend and they didnt work either.

i have the eclat teck front hub and the fly front rim its cross lacing one

someone help. thanks

one of those has to work. it all depends on the spoke pattern and cross lacing(most are 3 cross and 4 cross).if 194 and 192 were too long, and 188 and 186 were too short, then 190 should work. get your shop to do it for you, because you obviously dont know how

first off you dont cut spokes. its pretty usless to do so. your shop should have the right spoke length. and im guessing you havent laced a wheel before, let your shop do it, so you know it was done professionally

You're both fucking idiots. You can't cut spokes without rethreading them, and I don't know a shop in the world that will do that. 50$ is a little steep, but you must realize that most shops don't lace wheels very much anymore. It is a lost art among many. Not everyone can lace a wheel as fast as turbo. It usually takes a good solid hour of no distractions.

That's pretty fast. I haven't laced a bmx wheel in a while, but the last wheel I did was a 24" and it took me a solid hour. Maybe more, but time flies when you're having fun...

Nah they are. They're good nowadays. We still get quite a few cracked carbon Zipps in, but mostly, it's the old ones when people didn't know what they were doing with carbon..or aluminum for that matter, and nipples would pull themselves straight out of the rim.
