I'm still new at wheel building But I learn very quickly and I needed more information on how to properly take Hub measurements to type into the Spoke calculater! So I went to UBI and read how to correctly take measurements and I typed it into their calculater and the difference between theirs and Prowheelbuilers is that Prowheelbuilders was more accurate than UBI's calculater. I did Not know if I should add or subtract to the closest mm: of measurement? So I compared the two different options and Prowheelbuilders Calculater made it easier for me to decide on what length I should go with! if I would have used the length that UBI calculated it would have been a little bit to Short on my Drive side! I figured what the Hell I'll go with prowheelbuilders calculation and it paided off for me! The Spoke Lengths Where Right on the Money!!!. I'm Well Pleased with my New DT Swiss Spokes and they look great as well! I'm using rims with offset spoke holes and I subtracted 1mm from the None drive side and added 1mm To the Drive side like I should and Prowheelbuiders was more accurate! I laced a Novatec D882SB Rear Hub up to a Loaded AmX Gold Anodized Free ride rim with ERD: of 532 and it is running very Smoothly!

My OEM ebike wheel had a hop in it. When I went to my local bike store for a new wheel I gave him a wish list and a price range. I guess I wanted too much for too little and never heard back from him.
I entered my wish list to Pro wheel builder.com and found out I could indeed get what I wanted in budget.
3 weeks later I got a package with a gorgeous custom wheel for me, make with ebike Sapim strong spokes and a rugged DTswiss rim.
Later that afternoon after easily fitting it (my first tubeless tire) I went out to test it. Within a half hour I had achieved two new PRs on the two Strava segments I rode. One by 7 seconds and one by 10. I did a 12 mile trip at an average of 21.3 mph. I would say the wheel works! I don't know if it is the rim geometry, the fact that it is now running tubeless, or the Shimano hub being faster, but I guess I really don't care. The combo works. I would recommend ProWheelbuilder.com to my e-bike buddies, and you guys should probably make an e-bike category for this growing segment.
