The rim for a conical hub is different than the rim for a spool hub.Well I got a front wheel recently. It's an original Jones 21" wm1. I'm going to use the conical front hub. While doing some more reading on lacing wheels I read that with a conical hub the wheel needs to be drilled at a certain angle so that the spokes line up correctly. Can anyone tell me if the wheel I bought is correct for the hub or did I waste my money?
There is a difference in nipple angle and used as is there would be a lot of bind.
You could elongate the nipple holes but I would rather look for the right rim instead of modifying that nice Jones rim.
