I'm swapping my white industries ENO hub to a Industry Nine Torch SS hub and I want to use my current Stan's rim and Sapim CX Ray spokes because both have such low mileage (under 400 miles). I crossed my fingers and hoped that the spoke lengths were similar.. and here's what I got when using a spoke length calculator...

Currrently on a WI Hub:


Want to switch to an I9 Torch SS Hub:


The question is... Do you think I can reuse my Sapim CX Rays? I'd prefer to reuse them not just for financial reasons, but also because mine have such low miles. I was planning to at least get new nipples since my current ones are alloy (switching to brass).

What do you guys think?

They're close enough that it might work out. I think it will come down to the spoke length that was actualy used in your current build. How are the spoke ends compared to the bottom of the slots now?

I'm not sure, but I'll check when I get home and post a photo. I'm hoping I see some extra length poking out of the bottom.

Don't see a problem reusing the spokes. I have reused lightly used spokes in the past on my personal builds with no adverse effects. Spoke length looks spot on.
