it depends on the hub and rim too. spokes are different size for different hubs and rims and lacing patterns and whatever you do stick with 4 cross lace. and anyways i couldnt even tell you the length youd need its better to ask a shop or mailorder and when you order then them will send the right size

i dont know how the measure them i did find a way to measure but man you need an enginners degree to understand it!!!! i think i found it off the g sport website and it redirected me to a place and i was like 8O what are they talking about there is way way way way way way too much measuring!!! ill just let shops or mailorders find them for me by looking at a book and putting the hub and rim together and bam they know it

ok buy the rims and spokes at the same place it would be easier and quicker. now you can learn to lace your own wheel(save you money too) its not hard at all to me but its a pain bending the spokes to run spokes under another one and not scratch the rim. but when you are lacing i rim ive found its better to put some tape on the end to the spoke to keep it from scratching the rim.

heres a link to g-sport website about how to lace a wheel http://www.gsportbmx.co.uk/custom/wheel_build/wheels.html

you tell them what hub and rim and spoke pattern you want, which would be 4 cross, and they will know what size to get you just call them up and tell them everything. if you cant call the place where your ordering your rim(which you should be able to) then your going to have to go to a shop and tell them everything you got and might have to bring in the rim and hub so they can figure it out
