I want to build my first set of wheels using Ambrosio Excellight rims 32 hole, Campag Record hubs and Sapim black spokes. How do I calculate the length of the spokes I will need, should I do them 2 or 3 cross and what is a good book or website to explain how to do it? I plan to borrow a wheel building stand; will I need a spoke tension gauge too?
