Stoopid Wheel 3 Didn't Work on Initial Build

Came home with a 36H Deep V from the Swap and I needed a 32H (D'OH!) for the lace over from the gold wheel that had some big dings and a flat spot.

Tried a lace over stoopid build with 32H hub and 36H rim.  Needless to say on it's first attempt with the original spoke....

new stoopid wheel didn't work

The 2 spokes to each side of the 2 blank holes in rim need to be about 8mm shorter than the rest

there's 4 other pairs of spokes that need to be about 6mm shorter


I can't decide if I should just wait for a new Deep V 32H or buy some short spokes and build up stupid...prolly a bad idea on a rear wheel that will see nacho momma trail from time to time

  1. now I'm thinking that I'll pull the rear off my "HUFFY" fixie and use that for the dedicated fixie's got a Salsa Delgado cross rim on it anyway (pro: rim brake compatibility if I was to run flip flop mullet)...then I'll buy the shorter spokes that I need to sure up the stoopid 36/32 Deep V build and put that on the "HUFFY"...stoopid wheel should be fine in the rear for a road bike;-)
