Hi all,

I've recently bought an old Triumph Traffic Master for a pretty good price however the wheels aren't so nice!

I'm looking to rebuild both the front and back using some new chrome rims. I'm planning on keeping the old SA 3 speed hub and front hub (narrow, old raleigh style- 90mm?).

They are currently on 36 hole, 590 rims. What size spokes should I buy?

Many thanks for any help!

    14g spokes will be the right size for your intended build.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    You need to measure the hub and the rim ERD... do you know how to do it?

    If not, I suggest you do a bit of reading before embarking in a build
