Wheel Build with SRAM i-Light

Purchased the SRAM i-Light 36H and want to build a wheel up using a Mavic A719 rim with Wheelsmith DB14 spokes. This will be my first time building a wheel and I have a lot to learn, which is the reason I am taking it on myself. I have popped a few spokes on my rear wheel and will be using the existing hub and building it up with a A719 as well.

After downloading a spoke calculator I am at a loss as to what the real spec's on the i-Light are in order to plug into the calculator. Sram lists the following

Hole Reference 80mm
Flange Distance 40mm
Offset 0
Axel Length 103mm

Does this fit into these variables in the spread sheet?

Diameter of the spoke holes 80mm
Distance from Center of the wheel to center of the flange 40mm

That's correct. Be sure to use cross three for the pattern.

Thanks for the confirmation. Checking your profile I see that you are, as I suspected, the Peter in Peter White Cycles. I have gone through your web site numerous times over the past few weeks and wish that I was in a financial position to take advantage of your expertise and much higher quality of components than what I have. Someday!

A great web site with a ton of very solid information. Well worth taking the time to go through. You might learn something - I did.

Hey fthomas (or anyone else for that matter) - can you give an update on your i-Light hub? I am considering getting one, but am having a tough time finding any reviews... Am considering the i-Light D7 - anyone have anything good (or bad) to say about these?
