Any wheel building experts out here that can give me a hand? I have an old set of Bontrager wheels. They’re the ones with DT Swiss 240 hubs branded as Bontragers and paired lacing. Exactly like these but not carbon, BONTRAGER XXX Race lite Carbon Fiber ROAD Wheelset bags brakepads skewers.

The rims are getting some wear and I happen to have a 20h DT Swiss RR585 sitting in my garage. If I were to buy a 24h match, how big of a pain would it be to lace those up with normal spacing? The way the front hub is built, it looks like I could radial lace them without issues…unless I’m missing something. In the rear I’m thinking radial on the NDS and 2x on the DS. Thoughts? This would be a first for me so I’m not sure how to go about measuring spokes without some trial and error.
