How do you measure the length of a spoke ?

Spoke length is measured from the centerline of the elbow to the end of the threaded portion. Straight pull spokes are measured from the underside of the head to the end of the threaded portion. Spoke lengths are sized metrically. 25.4mm per inch. Be accurate. Spokes come in 1mm length increments. Plus/Minus 2 mm is usually OK because of the length of the nipple.
