Having built a few 3 cross wheels I wanted to try something different just for the fun of it.
I've got a pretty sweet price on some 290mm spokes, the front wheel is 32h, want to lace it 2 leading 2 trailing, and the rear is 36h, want to lead it 3 leadng 3 trailing.
Now, i've calculated the front to need 290.6mm spokes, so they'll be fine, but the back requires 292.6mm.
This on either side add's up to 5mm of a difference.
Will I be able to use 290mm spokes on the 36h wheel that requires 292.6mm? I'm using standard. 12mm nipples that protrude roughly 6.5mm out of the rim.
The spokes are threaded for around 10mm at the end of the spoke.
Hope this is enough info,
