Trying to build my first set of wheels, and i'm running into problems right away.
I'm building the standard 32 spoke, 3-cross, and i'm following the instructions in Jobst Brandt's book pretty close (I think). The first two set of spokes go in fine. I get the hub turned as far as it will go, but when i start putting the cross spokes in i just can't make the buggers reach.
Is there a common problem that i'm running into here? My LBS, who i trust, measured the spokes, so I don't think they are too short. what else could this be?
