    Spoke Lenght ZTR Alpine + Hope Pro 2

    Hi, I want build a pair of wheels with ZTR Alpine and Hope Pro 2 Hubs.
    When I introduce the parametres in the DT spoke and Prowheelbuilder calculator, this is the result:

    The problem is these spoke lenght (259mm) is very very hard to find.
    If I build the wheel with 258 and 260mm spokes, there will be any problem?

    Thanks for attention.

    Assuming....

    that the measurements you entered into the calculators are correct, then yes, you should be able to use 258 and 260mm spokes without issues. The rule of thumb for spoke length is + or - 1mm. You should be fine.

    Yep, I used to use 258mm and 260mm to build Olympics (back when I rode mini-wheels...)

    also, check this table: the ztr alpine have the same ERD as the olympic ...

    so stan's suggests 258 and 260.
