i have 32 hole velocity deep v's and paul high flange hubs. i only need spokes. problem is paul doesnt have hub center to flange center on their specs, a stat i need for the spoke calc im using. if anyone has built these exact wheels (which i know lots of people have) can you please suggest a spoke length. i think i need 28-282 and i think ill go with wheelsmith double butted because quality has no black spokes left in the supposed right size. thanks.

i used 280's with no problems (i assume you are doing a 3x lacing)
my Paul hubs came with a sheet with (among other things) the flange width. it also states that the hubs are zero dish, so just divide that by 2 and you have the center-to-flange measurement... 65mm/2 = 32.5mm
