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)

Hey wheel builders!

So I need to buy spokes for a wheel, Im lacing a formula to a mavic cxp22. And seeing as how its one of the most common set ups around, I was wondering of any one new off hand what length I need.

i just went through this, it's a pain in the ass. take it to a shop and have them measure your components, write it down and throw it into one of the many online calulators.
