Are you starting from scratch or are you replacing the rim on the bike and have the old one still laced?

replacing the rim & the hub is not laced,tried a few different variations but the long spokes always seem to be a bit to long & they are the old spokes.

If the old rim was still laced and you were replacing the rim and spokes I could tell you a way to do it fairley easy but if you just have a handful of spokes and a hub and rim I can't help. Not being familiar with the long and short spoke situation.

there are inner and outer spokes, i think the longer ones are outers and the shorter ones are inners, i think that mean they go on the inner holes on the hub.

Here is my suggestion if you have never done this before.
Take the hub and the spokes and the rim and the nipples to a shop and pay them to install them and true the wheel.

I could go thru a very long and detailed explanation on how to relace and true a wheel but if you do not have the the proper spoke wrench. torque wrench, hub off set distance, a truing stand, and a set of dial indicators it would serve you no purpose.

A shop should charge you about two hours of labor rate to lace and true the wheel. That is a lot cheaper and less frustrating than trying to lace it and then true it your self if you have never laced or trued a wheel before.

Truing (rim side to side alignment) and centering a wheel for the first time can take hours even with a good truing stand and the correct measurement tools and spoke wrenchs. Once you learn the pattern it is not bad, what is difficult is maintaining the hub centering and not pulling the rim out of round. That is the easy part. Then comes the time consuming part of trying to figure out which spokes to loosen and when ones to tighten to fix it.

Where did I learn? I learned in a bicyle shop many years ago and it took hours and days to learn how to lace and true a wheel.
