I'm going to have a local wheel builder build me up a 32h HED C2 clincher set laced to Ultegra hubs. Wondering which spoke to go for: DT COMP

1.8/1.6/1.8mm ; 15/16/15 Gauge

OR

2.0/1.8/2.0mm ; 14/15/14 Gauge

How much you weigh? What are you doing with these wheels? Do you rock the bike?

The heavier gauge spokes will give you greater lateral and radial stiffness and that may be a good thing from your description

Go for brass nipples, not alloy.

I just built up a set with same components. I think you will be pleased.

Use 28mm or the widest tires you can fit between your stays.
