Default Lacing a 28 hole rim to a 36 hole hub


Is it possible to lace a 28 hole rim to a 36 hole hub? The reason I ask
is that I can get hold of an 18" rim and tyre, and would like to try
building it up into a unicycle.

Has anyone done this before?

hey tony- i had the same problem as you, although it was the inverse
situation. I had a 28 spoke hub and rim set on my crappy beginner
unicycle and when i killed it i cold not get a 36 hole rim laced into
it. Hope this saves you time and frustration,
MArk

I think it could be done. All holes in the rim would be used, and each
side of the hub would have 3_4_3_4_ holes used (where the _ is an unused
hole). I can't think quite how the spoke lacing would end up, but I'm
sure it could be made to work.
