Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

contrary to popular belief, we are not calculators. Find a spokecalc.

my rough calculations, however say that you are going to need a size 10.5

if you have the hubs and rims you should be able to go to your LBS and let them take some measurements and tell you. people often forget the LBS is there...i used to ride a lot of BMX and shops were pretty much worthless, but with my new build ive been in and out of there all the time and it is actually generally easier and cheaper. so go in with a smile and ask

People like you shouldn't be handed answers when you've clearly demonstrated not an iota of evidence that you did any work on your own.

what are the flange diameters and widths for those hubs. neither the profile website or spokecalc have the specs. without the specs, nobody can answer your question besides someone who can physically measure them (ie lbs).

edit: spokes are going to be short obviously... im guessing 280mm

You uessed wrong but I still don't want to tell the guy. Go to your LBS, be a nice guy and buy your spokes from them instead of online and maybe if/when you F up the wheel build they won't charge you too much extra to fix it. (this happens alot to me at my shop, the people looking for free spoke calculation to buy spokes online)

It would be easier for me to tell you, but better for you to figure it out for yourself. Teach a man to fish ya know?

So I'll point you in the right direction. Sheldon Brown has a great tutorial on wheel-building on his site. Amongst other useful info on wheel-building is a link to a great downloadable spoke calc Excel spreadsheet. Download that plug in your components, and order your spokes.
