Spoke legnth advice
I tried being cheap and I failed. Building a new set of 9 spd road wheels wheels and Kreuzotter said 297 for the front, 296 for the rear. So I figured that since the spokes legnths were within 1 mm, I would just use 297 front and rear. Wrong.
Front wheel spoke legnth was perfect, all the spokes were just up to the bottom of the slit in the spoke nipple.
Rear, on the other hand, was way off. The DS spokes were sticking out a good 1-2 mm over the top of the nipple, NDS spokes were good, right at the bottom of the slit in the nipple.
So my question is, should I go with 296 or 295's for the rear. Thanks.
