You can't lace a 32 hole hub to a 36 hole rim, no matter how much you want that new wheel. Best to figure that out before getting all excited and beginning the lacing process.

The only one I know is a 24 rim with a 32 hub with every other hole on the non drive side.

Yeah, I'm afraid you're right. You want to put a spoke in every spoke hole on the rim; if your rim has more holes than your hub, it's not going to work out very well.

I will be testing this idea soon, when I lace a 24H hub to a 36H rim. I think it'll be okay... but... uh... more on this later.

There is a thread, somewhere, about lacing a 36H hub to a 28H rim. It involved a level of trigonometry beyond my ken, and several different spoke lengths. I'm sure you could do the same thing with a 32H hub.

A 40H hub works nicely with a 32H rim, though.

This was a simple case of forgetting that I don't have any 36 hole hubs. I have lots of 32 hole hubs and lots of 36 hole rims. I hope to remedy that during my upcoming trip to the US.
