    Question DT 240s rear and spoke lengths

    I recently decommisioned my FFWD F2R tubular rims (1st gen), but nicely so that they should be usable for tire stretching.

    Found it interesting that the 24 rear wheel spokes were of equal length inside of +/- 1mm, and not possible to divide into 2x12 pcs by lenght.
    Is this to be expected with the DT 240s and a 20mm rim built 2x DS and NDS?
    They do anything just to win a salami in ridiculous races. I take my gear out of the car and put my bike together. Tourists and locals are watching from sidewalk cafes. Non-racers. The emptiness of those lives shocks me. It was the illest of times, it was the dopest of times. And we looked damn good. Actually the autobus broke down somewhere on the Mortirolo.

    Hmm... Must check what lenght increments and tolerances DT have on their Aerolites.
