 Spoke
A spoke is one of some number of rods radiating from the center of a wheel (the hub where the axle connects), connecting the hub with the round traction surface.
The original type of spoke wheel with wooden, fixed spokes was used for horse drawn carriages.
For use in bicycles, such wheels proved to heavy, so wheels with spokes made of adjustable metal wires were introduced.

 Spoke Length Formula with Wheel Lacing and Building Information
Different lacing patterns and the placement of the spoke (rear drive, non drive, or front) affects the build tension of the spokes, thus their length.
For spokes laced radially from the hub, the formula is simple because all you need to know is the radius at the rim, the radius at the hub and the hub flange's offset from the hubs center.
is the angle of the spoke hole in the hub that the spoke will connect to, in relation to the spoke hole in the hub that is directly in line with the spoke hole in the rim where the spoke connects.

 Spoke-hub distribution paradigm - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Spoke-hub distribution paradigm (also known as a hub and spoke model) derives its name from a bicycle wheel, which consists of a number of spokes jutting outward from a central hub.
Because of the efficiency (and relative inflexibility) of the model, it requires that the items (or people) being distributed must be routed through a central hub before reaching their destination.
Soon after, other firms like UPS and Airborne had no choice but to develop their own hub and spoke model given the natural superiority of this system for speedy delivery of packages.

 Reverse Spoke Illusion
When one analyses step-by-step the grey levels next to the spokes, there are two steps where any given spoke first merges with the preceding sector on one side, then with the succeeding sector.
Since in this transition the spoke’s identity is lost and thus it (seemingly) changes position, is it is seen as moving.
Since all spokes are grouped together, the entire spoke wheel is perceived as undergoing a continuous rotation.

 Bicycling - Wheelbuilding: check spoke tension using musical pitch
Due to the dishing of a rear wheel, the left spokes are under lower tension and have a lower musical pitch, if the same gauge and number of spokes are used on both sides of the wheel.
14-gauge plain-gauge spokes on the right and 14-16 gauge butted spokes on the left balance nicely; with this combination, spokes on both sides ring at approximately the same pitch, indicating that they are both carrying optimum tension.
The reason that thinner spokes on the left work better and last longer is that they are stretched by the same amount and have the same stiffness against lateral (side-to-side) motion of the rim as the thicker spokes on the right.

 Spocalc, by Damon Rinard. A free Excel spoke length calculator.
(The change in spoke length is the same whether the rim moves relative to the hub, or the hub moves relative to the rim.) To do this, just change the left and right flange offsets by the rim offset.
Errors in spoke hole diameter contribute directly to errors in spoke length, but since the errors are usually so small (much less than 1 mm) they rarely make a significant difference in spoke length.
Also, it may seem obvious, but check to be sure you entered the correct number of spokes (N), and that you read the spoke length from the cell corresponding to the correct number of crosses.
