Well, rim and hub are both 32H and I also start with trailing spokes...
Just tried figuring out why they start bending and I am getting the idea the spokes are too short anyway. Can't reach both sides either with two spokes ging left/right from the center of the hub (well, from the holes in the flanges). But my spokelength calc gave me 263mm for a Pulstar hub with Mavic x317 Rims (effective rim diameter is 539.5).
Anyone have a spoke calc to confirm I have the right length? The hub also doesn't look faulty to me, no misaligned or unevenly spaced eyelets in it. The rear wheel (XT M732 hub with X317 rim) went flawless, done in a jiffy. Just can't figure out what's wrong up front
