Building E-bike wheel

Barely fits

Took on this project out of curiosity.

Originally the electric hub/motor came with a 700C wheel. After some usage wheel went out of true and got damaged.  This is when wheel owner needed to  build it a new. This time lacing it on 26″ rim (Sun Rhyno Lyte) also using new Sapim Strong spokes (2.3 – 2.0 mm). Pretty strong wheel isn’t?

Little challenge was coming from a very wide hub flange diameter. It meant two things – spokes will have an extreme angle at the rim holes point, also it was tricky to measure what length spokes should be.

Having said that the wheel did turne out well.

Here are some pictures from the wheel building factory.
