Help with spoke length.

I am trying to find out what length of spokes to use for lacing a Shimano 3CC 36h hub to a Schwinn 36h, 26 inch S-2. Any help would be Great. Thanks

There's a spoke calculator at www.dtswiss.com that I found a little more intuitive than spocalc. As long as you know the dimensions that you need to measure, any of the several online calculators are pretty good.

Word of advice from experience - when they suggest rounding down to the next shorter mm ... by all means do it.

I looked and looked but couldn't find it on the site.
Maybe I'm not intuitive enough to use it if I can't even find it!

If you're using Spocalc, there's a link that tells how to measure the dimensions. You do have the hub, right?
