Spoke Length Calculators and Selecting Spokes
Good morning everyone,
Im buidling up a set of wheels (first time).
I have a spoke tension gauge, wheel truing stand and spoke wrench to do the job.
I have done all the measurements and run them thru a couple spoke length calculators.
They say "..these are maxium lengths..."
How accurate do I need to be when buying the spokes since not all sizes are available?
If I need
296mm left and 295mm sprocket rear
Can I buy a bag of 299mm and 295mm spokes?
How far can I go from the original measurement? 1mm down, 2mm down? 3mm?? or up?
