they should be able to help you on what to order. you'll want a rim that is drilled for whatever hub you're using. from there you'll need the correct length spokes. they should be able to tell you what you need.

building the wheel is the easy part. you can put it together so it runs out decent and take it to a shop to true and tension. or you can do it all at home. i used to just use the forks on my bike to true the wheels i built for my mountain bike. it's not perfect but it's close.

i'm really scared but i'm even more confused, so i end up doing nothing.
