What is the best way (according to you) to lace a front wheel and a rear wheel. Please let me know your preferences!

A bit boring but I like a standard 3-cross front ( 28 ) and rear ( 32 ).

Certainly not as cool looking as a radial 24 spoke front but gets the job done.

anyone tried front wheel 3 crow foot pattern on 24 hole rim spokes on 32 hub?
the best rear wheel for me should be half-radial mavic crossland. strong and light. i ride it and i like it. :twisted:

Often they lace the front radialy as it requires less lateral strength.
The spokes need to be tighter but the weight saving might be wrth it pending on your riding.
3 cross at the rear for strength, I hate breaking drive side spokes.

i avoid radial even through its light. It may untrue easily. radial is light because the spokes r short and straight that make it abit lighter. Very nice feeling too. radial spokes must be use in forge hub like shimano not CNC type. Why must be always Shimano!!! :evil:

Tune is also an option. They make hubs for radial spoking with higher flanges.

For the rear: 3-cross both sides
For the front I like radial lacing (no disc brakes!)

for the front: 24 radial (with the orange rims and black spokes/hubs looks pretty nifty)
for the rear: 28 radial but cross on the drive side

i'm 170 lbs ...fairly smooth rider ...no disc brakes ...no problems :)

i think this is a good setup but Bontrager Race is far from the ultimate wheelset...

by the way how would you guys compare the tune hubs to Soul Kozak's P1 and P2 XC? ...it appears the Kozaks are lighter and less expensive than tune hubs...

Wich rims do you mean? It's pretty hard to find any 24 hole rims.

If i want radial on my tune front hub i have to stick with 28 hole rims.

Then i'll opt for DT swiss rims and spokes on Tune hubs! 8)

the more cross the stronger but i dun mind about the weight.
32 3-cross spoke would be my rear and front.
radial spokes can flex which can be untrue easily
Not Recommended for rough terrain. :evil:

My crossride wheelset has a 24 spoke radial laced front wheel! And after three years of use still no problem!

So you all would go for the 28 spoke radial laced front wheel? Or would u use a cross pattern.

Are there any wheelbuilders in here?

As I can build a half decent wheel ( just had a rebuild after a customer broke an axle on a rear hub after 3 years DHing on a HT- wheel was still straight).

My comments are Radial fronts are fine (appart from disc side) and don't come out of true as long as they are well built, just like any wheel.
Crows foot only works on 24h and 36h wheels and is a pain in the neck to work out spoke lengths.
Radial works fine on rear wheel non-drive side (as long as there is no disc).
3x better on 32h and above, can be use in 28h, but I prefer 2x.

For you I would pick 1st Choice: Front -24hRadial Rear - 28h 2x Drive, Radial non-Drive
2nd Choice: Front- 28h Radial
Rear - 28h 2x Drive, 2x non-Drive
