Is there an online table which shows what musical note corresponds with correct spoke tension and how do I figure out what spokes I have?
I believe these spokes to be generic, cheap spokes.Post a sound of your spokes here and I'll tell you. I don't know the corresponding note though. The sound itself isn't enough. I also need to know how many spokes in the wheel and where on the wheel the spoke is.
As for what spokes you have?
If it is a SAPIM spoke, then you'll have the letters SAP stamped on the elbow butt. The spoke head is smooth.
If you have DT Swiss spoke, you'll have a strange pattern stamped on the spoke head. It could be a distorted D, I never quite figured it out. It's a little parallelogram, if you ask me.
If it is a Wheelsmith spoke, you have to look at the butt shape, it is pretty abrupt. There are no other markings.
If it is a Pillar spoke, you have a distinctive P on the spoke head.
I can't remember what WTB spokes have.
I think there is an application for the iphone to help you with that. You need to know the spoke length and gauge.Is there an online table which shows what musical note corresponds with correct spoke tension and how do I figure out what spokes I have?
you could maybe utilize a guitar tuner. thinking about it you would need a proper trued wheel or two or three to calibrate the correct notes and note the readings on the tuner.Is there an online table which shows what musical note corresponds with correct spoke tension and how do I figure out what spokes I have?
I like what you say. In that vein then:I too use a spoke tensioner to check final tension. But, these days, I use it only because I have it! I arguably don't need to. Experience teaches you pretty quickly what sounds about right, but the tensioner was vital in gaining that experience. So a very worthwhile purchase indeed, if only for confidence sake.
