26" rim spoke length; round up or down ?
hey im thinking of building a new wheelset for my DJ bike.
im getting a fairly decent deal on 26" sunringle mtx 33 rims 36h that ill be lacing to a front g-sport marmoset bmx hub , as well as a high flanged rear hub; both in a 4 cross lacing pattern
this is the spoke calculation that i got for the marmoset:
also, a customer service regulator assured that i would need 265mm spokes for my rear setup.
the spokes that i want to be buying only come in 264 and 266mm lengths.
would it be appropriate to use a box of 264mm
spokes for both wheel and rim combinations? i have been told that its generally "alright" to round down in spoke lengths; and to be one millimeter short. I have also been told however that "longer" spokes [266mm] tend to bottom out the nipples. im trying to avoid my greedy local bike shop that overcharges me with everything, including custom cutting which i am under the impression is unnecessary. can somebody give me some useful input on my problem? thanks!
