Drive train determines the Hub Yea Shimano 105 will do Too.

I deal with the LBS

there are abundant online things to look for , to calculate length .. Its come Up before so search Back, Here.

36 rear 32 front is also a reasonable choice 3 cross .. Perhaps the DT alpine on the DS, a 13ga hook 15Ga mid and 14 Ga on the Nip end.

I like the Bicycle Research screw driver-crank as It lets me bring up the tension a half turn at a time , equally. as I go around the rim .
You going to do this truing on the Bike?

Ive built many wheels and never own a tension gage .. still ride on some I built in the mid 70's
