I'm having a set of indestructable post-apocolypse wheels (40h maxi-car hubs, 26" velocity aeroheat rims, 14/15 wheelsmith spokes) built. I originally had the parts sent unbuilt from yellow-jersey, who kindly calculated spoke lengths for me (the equation at the back of jobst's book has like 10 variables!). When I went to build the wheels though I realized I was in a bit over my head and decided to have them built at the lbs. They got the front wheel together, but the rear hub has high-low flanges, and they say that you cannt use a cross-four patter on a small flange. I believe this is becaus ethe spokes overlap. What spoking pattern should be used in this situation? Maxi-car would not have made the hubs if they were unbuildable.
(p.s. I also am awaiting a reply from andy muzi at yellow-jersey, so a definitive answer is forthcoming, but I still want to hear what you all think)
