ASK THE BMXPerts: SPOKE SWAPPING
Bookmark and Share

Hello!
My name is Ryan I have a Primo Remix hub laced to the Primo rim that comes
with it but with white spoke and green nipples. My friend wants to trade his Profile rhd 10t hub for my Primo. Will the spokes I have now work for the Profile hub or am I going to have to get new spokes?

It will depend on the lacing pattern. The stock Primo wheel comes with a 3-cross pattern we believe (modern stock wheels) which means there is a strong chance they will not work on the Profile unless your flange heights are exactly the same. Since the profile hub has two different flange heights, you might be out of luck. Your only hope is that your Primo has a 4-cross lace pattern, in which case they can be swapped over. The Profiles are a great hub, but for the labor involved, you have to consider if it is really worth the hassle.
