I've got a bunch of 292 mm spokes but both calculators and shop call for 291 mm non-drive side rear wheel. What do you think, can I use them with no problems or buy some 291 spokes? It's on Mavic A719 36h rim, standard 3 cross. Thanks

IIRC, that's a double wall rim, so you should be good.

Should be fine. I usually round 1 size up with spokes.

No problem. I used to build rear wheels with the same length spokes on both sides, "dishing" by cranking over the right-side spokes before final tension.

thanks guys, what I thought but always like to hear it from those more experienced than I. Also, what do you think of this spoke calculator, ever had any surprises with it? Thanks again.
