im getting my first custom wheel from empire bmx and i dont know what spoke length, lacing pattern, and number of spokes to get. I am getting the HB generator rim 36H laced to a Odyssey hazard cassette hub v3 (14mm and LHD). What is the most common spoke lacing pattern? what would be the correct spoke length? and would 36H mean i would need 36 spokes? i know i sound stupid right now but i really need help. thanks

if you buy all that stuff they will lace it for you for free. You don't have to worry about any of that stuff. Just add the free wheel build to your cart

36h means 36 spokes, and with 36 spokes you want 3 cross, so all you have to tell them is 3 cross, but theyd assume that anyways.

I put my spoke in her while I twisted her nipple.

you'll need to know eventually

a number followed by "h" such as 36h and 48h refers to spoke "H"oles. so if you have a 36h rim and 36h hub, you need 36 spokes. now i dont recommend mix matching hole counts like 36 and 48. just not good, but doable in a pinch. also the most common lacing pattern for 36h wheels with hubs that HAVE flanges is 3x, or 3 cross, which means each spoke with cross over 3 others. most "flangless" hubs require 4x or 5x, or 4 cross or 5 cross, lacing method. the flanges are the ring type things that extrude from the hubshell and hve the holes. (compare a primo n4 which has flanges, to the primo n4fl which is the flangless version.)

i had a v3 copy and i blew out 5 driver bearings, and it's the same driver. the mix has individual springs, 2 driver bearings and a bushing, and double the same bearings the v3 has in the hub shell. way smoother and more durable

odyssey also replaces alomst any parts that break with little to no questions asked. i bought a vandero 2 second had and stripped the axel, asked them what helicoil to replace it witha dn they just sent me new bolts and axel. rad guys. you can go wrong with a mix though, but neither with a v3

mailordeers do that shit for you. in all honesty (yes everyone i cant beleive it either) you should go to albes if you want the best wheel build of yout life.
