I want to build up a 26" wheel, and I would like to go with a 32 hole rim just for the variety available. It seems like the 48 hole hub is a good option.
Doing the basic math it seems very reasonable to build a 32 hole rim with a 48 hole hub. You just skip every third hole on the hub. In practice, what are the ins and outs for doing this build?
Awhile back Eric (saskatchawanian) mentioned in another post that you would need slightly different lengths for the pushing/pulling spokes. What is the variance? Is it close enough to get one length and grind down the long ones (or ignore them if they are below the level of double wall)?
