    If you are replacing existing spokes (that have broken perhaps?) you may want to measure the spokes on the same side of the wheel than any failed ones have come from.

    I enclose a diagram of where you need to measure from below. Measure from the end of the threads to the inner curve of the bend where the spoke becomes the head. Do it as accurately as possible as even one millimetre can make all the difference...

    Given that we are prone to error, I would measure several spokes and use the spoke calculator referenced by Jur. One should get consistent results. Otherwise, you need to revisit your methodology.
