Creative Bike Repairs: Fitting a 32-spoke hub in a 36-spoke rim
Bike touring sometimes requires you to be creative, especially if your bike breaks down and you can’t get access to the parts you need.
That’s what happened to Sonya & Aaldrik this year. They were bike touring in Brazil, when Sonya’s rim broke.
They wanted to re-use her old 32-spoke hub (much better quality than the ones in the shop) but the shop only had a 36-spoke rim. What to do? Make the two fit together, of course.
