Soo many online spoke calcs have properly hurt my head

So I'm after some confirmation from any wheel buidling experts on here

Hole's on a hubs / rims are 32 and I'm going standard 3 cross (don't want to compromise strength)

Hubs are
Hope Suspension front with disk and Hope Ti glide rear with disk. Rims are 231

Also have a pair of Hope bulbs (pre 6 bolt) which I want to lace to Mavic 121

I have a set of numbers noted down but will be great to get confirmation so I can order spokes ..

Edd is your friend.

Or possibly Spocalc if you want to download, understand and run the Excel spreadsheet.


EDIT: I appear to have ignored your first line, sorry. But use Edd, it's simple and accurate and as helpful as I can be without actually measuring up your components myself to calculate. Which I'd use the Sapim spoke calculator at www.sapim.be for.
