Aren't the DT Swiss ones on Madison 14G (2.0mm) at the ends?

Does anyone have any tips to work out spoke length for cross patterns? Is the calculation for radial lacing exactly the same as a normal hub? I didn't really want to raidally lace the wheel, but I might go with that if it's the easiest way to get the correct spoke length.

I have a Tioga hub built onto a Mavic 517 2 cross that I could measure but it wont be untill monday.
I also had it built onto a Mavic CXP30 for a while. 2 cross is the only sensible pattern due to the angle that the spoke exits the hub body.

That would be great. Any help would be much appreciated as I'm hoping to get the bike completed within the next few months, ready to cover plenty of miles on it next year.

Thanks cce, that's great, I think that should allow me to check and order some.

Does that work for straight pull spokes gtRTSdh? I was under the impression they made it different.

you have to enter the lacing pattern on the left side and press calculate.

Don't know where you plan to get your spokes from but I bought some recently from an ebay seller in Taiwan for my Pulsar hubs. They were good spokes, dirt cheap and quick delivery.
