Okjay well im trying to build my first wheelset. I didnt want to spend too much money on the highest quality parts becuase its my first so im doing 32 hole 3 cross. I am using DT swiss Hayes front hub with vuelta rear. DT Swiss competition spokes. I have taken apart 3 wheels and relaced them to get familiar with the process, but now this seems much harder. I used the DT swiss calculator and all of my parts (aside from rims) were in the database. Im having some hard time understanding it though. I see ri. and le. which i assume is right or left, but what i dont understnad is hjow do you determine which side is right and left? Or is it like for trailing spokes use a certain length and leading spokes use certain length. Please help. Oh and to get the best help i would guess i need the measurnment thing DT swiss gave me from the calculator.
