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)

Spoke length

I used sheldon brown's spoke calc for IRO high flanges to Deep V's. It said 278mm for both front and back.

I called ben's cycle and they said it should be 282mm, and that my calculations were wrong.

How off can I be when buying spokes?

You can be a few mm too long for Deep Vs, but not 4mm. Ben's does the same combination probably every day so I'd probably trust what they say over the spoke spreadsheet.

I got 281mm for my Deep-Vs to IRO high flanges, 32 hole 3 cross. Worked great.

according to that spreadsheet, it's 282 for 32 spokes, 278 for 36 spokes.
