In this tutorial we show you how to lace the drive side spokes of a rear bicycle wheel. It's important to remember that on the rear wheel the drive side spokes are slightly shorter than the non-drive side, due to the dish of the wheel. You should also prep your spokes with linseed oil or spoke prep before lacing. When lacing the drive side spokes start at the spoke hole next to the valve stem hole. Make sure it is a hole that is drilled towards the drive side of the hub. Most rims have slightly offset drilling, so the spoke holes will angle slightly toward one side of the rim or the other.
When lacing, each set of spokes will be placed every fourth hole. So when lacing the outy drive side, you place a spoke every fourth hole on the rim, with three holes in between.
