I must apologize to the list. After re-measureing the spokes I'm looking for it turns out that I'm looking for 303 mm. 14x17 or 15x17 if I can find them. Memory can be a terrible thing when it doesn' work for you. I would like to thank all who offered spokes to me in my wrong size and advice. They're still too long for the DT's from QBP in silver. Louis Schulman gave a great website for spokes at http://www.wheelbuilder.com/con tact/index.asp and Steven Maasland offered a wonderful price for a gross of the perfect wrong size I was looking for.
