Wheel Building Questions
So I'm going to try to tackle my first wheel build this winter and I've got a few questions for C&V folks who've been down this road before. I've got Campagnolo Nuovo Tip High Flange Hubs (36 hole) and Dolomiti rims, but no spokes to start off.
1. Spokes - those of you who build wheels, where are you buying your spokes? Who has the best pricing?
2. Spoke length - no original spokes for me to reference, so how do I go about figuring the correct length and gauge?
Thanks for any advice. I enjoy the challenge, but need a starting point!
