fudging spoke length
According to my handy dandy spoke length calc, I need 48 295mm spokes, and 16 293mm spokes for my wheelbuild. If I get a pack of 72 295mm spokes can I get away with using them on the drive side of the rear wheel, or will the extra 2mm be a problem.
If it is a problem should O just order 16 293s, or take them down to the LBS to have them cut. I'm using Open Pros in case that matters.
late 80s Paramount MTB with Xtracycle, late 80s Paramount MTB converted to single speed, Bianchi Nuovo Record converted to fixie, custom Tom Board lugged steel racer, 1950s Claude Butler, 1950s Dawes, custom chopper built on 50s cruiser by me
in my experience 2 MM either way is usually a problem. 2 MM too long a problem immediately, and 2 MM too short a problem later.
