Weight is not an issue. I want a 36 spoke 3 cross standard wheel that is strong when I'm done. I noticed alot of calculators have certain combos programmed in, and was wondering if someone knew a particular combo that works real well and could help me out with spoke lengths. I'd talk to a LBS - but I have none. I'll be ordering the spokes, rim, and hub online, and really need to get it right.
