I got home form work today, anxious to get started on my new wheel. The build goes as follows,
-Hope Pro II Disc 32 hole
-ZTR355 29” rim
-DT Swiss super comps 293mm

I started with the non-drive side trailing spokes, they lace in just fine, I flip the wheel over to start on the drive side trailing spokes and I hit a problem, what I’m only six minutes into the wheel and a problem already. I can’t get the spoke to seat in the hub, it’s like the bend is to sharp? This is only my third wheel ever so I’m a rooky. Is there such a thing as an inner or outer spoke? I tried a hand full of spokes and none of them went. The spoke seated up fine in an old LX hub I had sitting around, I think my hub is defective, I don’t know what to do. Any help would be great, Thanks.
