Surly Pugsley rear wheel build pics


I shall make this blog inspiring by posting pictures about the rear wheel built for my Puglsley.

I shall share the component specifications for that build:

Surley Rabbit Hole 32H silver rim.

Shimano Alfine 8spd internal gear hub. Older version – SG-S500.

Wheelsmith DB-14 silver spokes. Drive side: 283mm; Non drive side: 280mm;

Due to the offset rear dropouts wheel needs to be dished by ~17.5mm in order to have rear chain cog away from rubbing the tire simultaneously having both wheels in the same line. Surly supplies an adapter so you can use it for your offset wheel builds.

My spoke length calculations were wrong for a non drive side. Problem was fixed by filing the excess length off.
