Anyone know off hand what hub rim combo would use a 260mm spoke?
Is this long or short?
Reason for asking is i picked up 2 packs of spokes on ebay the other night.there were about to finish without bids and i thought 'what the hell' but im now unsure of what they'd fit
I was hoping the usual Mavic/Hope i prefer would work and as my wheelbuilder has a cut and threading machine then they could be cut shorter if necessary :) but i now think theyre usually a lot longer

Anyone any clues?,idea of what works with a 260mm or shorter? :)

It was the spokes on the drive side only, flange approx 60mm, spokes at approx 53mm centers.
