Spoke length help

Post by smaua » Sep 06 2019 9:58am

Hi I am a bit confused about how or what to buy to replace 2 spokes that broke on my ebike wheel.

I got from bmsbattery the q11 48V1KW kit and 28inch wheel..which was assembled by them, and I measured the spokes and the length I managed to measure with my tape is 7.5inch or 19cm. But I'm not sure exactly if I am measuring correctly or how accurate it is or what kind of measurements are used. I found some sites that calculate this but only have the big ebike brand choices.

Any help is super appreciated. Thanks!

You measure the spoke from the inside of the elbow to the end of the thread. Spoke lengths are usually described in mm.
