Building some new wheels finally. Just want to double check my numbers before I order spokes.
Rims - Mavic EX 823 - ERD: 530 (taken from Krispy's recommendation, using 16mm nipples)
Front hub - Hadley 20mm - Flange dia: 60, Center to right: 22.6, center to left: 31.4
Rear hub - Hadley 150mm - Flange dia: 60, center to right: 27.8, center to left: 32.2

Spokes:
Front: 251/252mm (Gonna use 252 all around)
Rear: 252mm

36h 3X w/ DT Competition spokes and 16mm nipples

Only number I can't confirm is the 823 ERD. Seems to be quite a few numbers floating around. Anyone built this same/similar wheel want to chime in.

A bit confusing, which is why I posted this thread so people could actually chime in with what spoke length they actually used and with what nipple length.
That thread throws around 228mm, 230mm, 232mm, 238mm, etc... all for ERD. Seems like my spoke length might be short though, as the one spoke length mention from Zark says 256mm all around. Still gonna hold off on ordering until I get some further confirmation.

I had that exact rear wheel up until about 2 months ago. I just measured the spokes and they were 252mm both sides. I measured the ERD to be 532mm back in 2006 when I built them up. There are slight variances in spoke calculators too so bear that in mind...
