    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.

    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...
