2x/3x rear wheel build

Does anyone have a reference image of a 32H 2x NDS/3x DS rear wheel?? My spokes at the valve are not running parallel, which I understand is a factor of the mismatched crossing numbers, but I just want to be satisfied that I'm not way off in terms of how I've started the 2x NDS.

Build info:
Campagnolo Veloce 32H hub
Velocity Razor grey ano rim
Pillar TB stainless spokes
Brass nipples

maybe the builder started with the wrong hole in the rim to put the 1st spoke in.

your picture 1st.

I'm the builder...so it is entirely possible that it is in the wrong spot. I can post a pic later, as the wheel is at home and I am at work. If anyone has done/seen others, I just need to see if the classic 'parallel spokes to valve hole' is possible on a hybrid cross pattern wheel.

My hybrid : late 70's era Campag High /low flange I used 3X the short Rt side , 4X on the long, low side ..

it all worked out.


You may have to loosen everything and start over.. from spoke one.. done that a time or 2 myself.
