I have some new hubs and am waiting for rims to arrive. I decided to wait to order the spokes because lots of guys think you should measure the rims and hubs yourself before using spocalc.
Is it always worth the extra time and energy to measure the stuff, or can I just trust what comes up in spocalc?
Also, the only way I've seen to measure a rim is in the Musson Wheelbuilding book.
Is this the easiest and most accurate way?
