Spoke length calculator...did I use it right?

Front hub: http://www.bikehubstore.com/product-p/ulf66.htm
Rear hub: http://www.bikehubstore.com/SuperLight-211-p/sl211.htm
Rim: http://www.notubes.com/Alpha-340-Rims-C68.aspx (except I'm using last years, same dimensions but lower weight)

I used this calculator and totally made up a number for spoke hole diameter: http://www.dtswiss.com/SpokesCalc/Calculator.aspx

These are the results


Did I plug the numbers in right? Am I about to order the wrong length spokes?

Thanks!

Front = Radial (0 cross) or 1 cross

Rear = Radial (0 cross) non-drive or 2 cross non-drive and 2 cross drive.

Here's my numbers for 1-cross front and 2-cross rear:

Assuming the ERD of 592 includes nipple washers AND aims for the screwdriver flat of a standard profile 12mm nipple:

285.75 Front

288.35 non-drive / 283.97 drive side

You really should check into what the ERD of 592 is based upon...i.e., does it include nipple washers and what was the aiming point in the nipple.

Have a DOS based calculator there as well as a spreadsheet..

So you guys think I should lace them up different? The only thing I've ever done is 3-cross...because I read somewhere it's the strongest. Opinions? Thanks!

Stan's own 18/24 wheelset uses radial lacing for front...and radial non-drive, 3x drive for the rear...
