i have a set of 1st generation bullseyes and dropped them off at local shop to get laced. the guy (old timer who seems very knowlegable) said that he needs to lace them offset (cog side spokes more straight up and down than the other side). i know road bikes and mnt bikes do this but is this correct for cruiser wheels? i figured the rim should be centered on the flanges, hence all spokes even in angles. they are going on a GT 26 bmxer. any thoughts appreciated...thanks
There will probably be a slight offset or "Dish". It definitely won't be as extreme as a road or mountain bike but there will be a little. I just looked at a set of my wheels with Bullseye hubs and there is a difference between the left side locknut to flange measurement and the right side locknut to flange measurement. You're really trying to get the rim centered between the locknuts, not the flanges.
