Might seem nooby, but what spoke length should I get?

depends on the hub and rim you're lacing

I dont want to seem rude, but if you dont know what spokes to use then are you compitant enough to lace your own wheels? If you're buying it all from one place, they will know what spokes to use & lace it up for you too i would imagine.

Daily grind to ribcage. I've never built my own wheels, I used stock rims, so I got some money to spend and figured why not buy a custom wheel

If you're getting a custom wheel i'd just get the free assembly

Heard danscomp lacing is a piece of shit.

From what i've heard their lacing is hit and miss. The most common problem i hear people having isnt that they are out of true but that the spokes become loose after a week of riding which alot of new wheels are prone to after they break in. To fix that all you have to do is go around and tighten every spoke evenly. Either way its free so what's there to lose?

Not much honestly. If need be, I'll just be a pansy and go to my local bike shop.

Daily grind to rib cage should be bomb proof
I got marmoset to ribcage and it's legit

As for lacing just let dans or empire lace them and if it's really as bad as people say (danscomp) then just go to your LBS

Then why not marmoset
It's designed to grind but yeah i'd try out the DG, seems tough as hell with those sexy ass chromoly guards
Only thing i regret is that i can't have proper guards on the gsport
I got 2 glands, here it's impossible to get knight guards and i'm not a big fan of the bsd one

Don't want to spend extra money on guards. Why not get a legit hub and get not now, but two hub guards.
