    Hey wheel builders!

    So I need to buy spokes for a wheel, Im lacing a formula to a mavic cxp22. And seeing as how its one of the most common set ups around, I was wondering of any one new off hand what length I need.

    i just went through this, it's a pain in the ass. take it to a shop and have them measure your components, write it down and throw it into one of the many online calulators.

    ERD is 599. Spokulator says 284 for 36 3x, 288 for 32 3x.
