Spoke Length

Calculated the spoke lengths for my new wheelset (Hadleys laced to Atomlab Pimps). For the front wheel the lengths (rounded by ST) were 254 left and 253 right. For the rear wheel they were 255 left and 253.

To make things easier on me, can I run all the spokes at 254? I don't really want to cut 3 different lengths, plus it will just confuse me when I go to build them?

Thanks
Matt

That's what I'm thinking. A mm shouldn't make that much difference.
