having just sold the hub out of a wheel, i find myself left with 32 spokes, 32 nipples and a rim.

now, i quite fancy a go at wheel building with these two, but obviously i'll need a hub.

i appreciate that going about it this way is a bit backward, but does anybody know of any hubs that use the same length spoke as this WTB one?

Best thing to use is the SpoCalc:wink:

What is Spocalc?
Spocalc is a free Excel spreadsheet I made that calculates spoke lengths for wire spoked wheels. There are lots of other spoke calculators on the web (see the list I've assembled). Some require you to measure your own rim and hub, but Spocalc includes a database of over 350 hubs and 500 rims. The Spocalc database is also user-modifiable and -expandable so you can add more rims and hubs.
