Hello, i'm gonna build this wheel, Odyssey Hazard Lite rim, Odyssey hazard v3 cassette hub and 34r spokes (these http://www.nuggetesshop.es/products/a34r99/ ) and i don't know what size should i buy. Using this spoke calculator http://www.pijin.co.uk/spokecalc.html it says that i need 185.2mm for non drive side and 184.8mm for drive side, but those 34r spokes only come on 184 and 186mm, so, what size should i buy? does that little difference matter?

Did you pick a different spoke pattern? 3x and 4x use different length spokes. You want to do 3x for 36 spokes, if I'm not mistaken.

In the one you told me, when picking 3 cross lacing pattern and it says i need 188.4 mm, and when picking 2 cross lacing patern it says i need 181.1 mm. In the one Gypsy told me, it says that for 3x lacing patern i need 184.8 mm for drive side and 185.2 mm for non-drive side.

NOTE: In both spoke calculators i used Odyssey Hazard v3 cassette as hub, and Odyssey Hazard Lite as rim, as in none of them the Cinema 777 rim is listed, and i think that those two rims are pretty similar (i could be wrong). could you help me out please?

Just call danscomp and ask what size you need for the rim and hub

topic updated, buying a different rim, can you help me please?

ps: don't tell me to get a complete odyssey wheel because i already got the hub from a friend for 40 euros and my old salt hub, and it's practically new

i was going to say you could buy the one that is 1mm shorter and be fine simply because your spoke nipples will reach, and if they dont you can buy longer ones on dans
