Hi all.

I have the hubs and rims for my trike build - Street fox I think...

I have been to

http://www.bikeschool.com/tools/spoke-length-calculator

and with the fsettings I entered got 180.1mm spoke length.

When buying spokes, how much leeway do I have? I can find spokes at 180, 182, 184mm.

What would suit best?

Cheers

Brandon.

Assuming you did everything right with the calculations, I would go with 180mm. You don't want them protruding through the nipples.
