I pretty pleased and thanks. Wheel building is something I always wanted to accomplish. Like climbing some section or clearing a feature that used to beat you silly. Just nice to get one in the win column

Much is still lost to me. The wheels I’ve built were with known spoke lengths. The jargon that goes with spoke length calculation makes me hear Charlie Brown’s teacher.
That’s the next hill to climb. Luckily old wheels are symmetrical. That eases the pain

I had a shop mechanic/wheel builder, who was a good friend. He built me a bunch of wheels. He moved on and I'm floundering. :(

I got MCS in my back yard. He’s done all my wheel work before and likely others to come. Craig is an awesome resource to have for backup

These days it's a walk in the park to calculate spoke lengths.
DT Swiss has an online calculator, that's been around for a couple of decades by now, so it's pretty much honed by now.

https://spokes-calculator.dtswiss.com/en/calculator

How to measure a hub:

Get yourself a proper spoke wrench that grips on 4 sides, DT Swiss makes a nice one for reasonable money, and a wheel truing stand, and you're good to go.

It doesn't get any easier!

I know it will come to me in time of need. I’m task oriented. If I need it I learn it. The old wheels I’m doing have been forgiving
