Hey i just got some profile elite hubs and now want to order (ti) spokes and rims. I'm going for G sport birdcage rim on front and rollcage on rear and was wondering if anyone who either has the same wheel set up or someone who knows about spoke size could point me in the right direction on what size to go for. Riding 20" rims. Thanks

I wouldn't have a clue, but hopefully this helps https://bmxunion.com/bmx-spoke-calculator/

If I could go a tenth as high as Larry Edgar goes, then I would still be blasting super high.

184 on the front
184 drive side, 186 non drive side rear

Thanks man, did you mean 186 on front and non drive and 184 drive? Because non drive and front look about the same diameter

The flange spacing has far more effect on spoke length than flange diameter. That's why the non-drive needs slightly longer spokes than the front.

front hub is narrower so id guess you should go with the 184.

Wow beautiful wheels I agree wink With something so nice and expensive that first scratch breaks my heart. Are these for trails?
