Search is down so I need a good spoke calculator to do my first wheel build. I tried a few but donít know if the calculations will be close enough. I am matching up a different rim to my hub so starting from scratch. Thanks

This is a link to Sheldon Brown's website where he gathers several spoke lengtrh calculators. I have looked at some of them beforebut have never relied on the info, but since there are several listed, one ought to take care of you. Good luck.

Damon Rinard's Spocalc is the best, absolutely. It is an Excel spreadsheet with a database of hubs and rims attached. You just find your hub and rim in the list and it'll automatically fill in the diameter, width, etc. It's linked to from Sheldon's site.
I've used the DT Swiss calculator at their home page with good results.
