I just ordered my ENVE 4.5 King wheels with Sapm CX-ray, and I assumed that they front would be laced radially, but it isn't. Should I have him relace it? I'm 6'2" and about 180 lbs. Its too bad bc they were going to get picked up and shipped tomorrow, if they can't get relaced by tomorrow I won't be able to have them shipped to me for a month as I won't have any to pick them up from the shop and send them out to me (long story why). Or should I just have them sent to me as is, and it isn't a big deal.

Thanks

I would keep them as they are if that's how Enve recommend that they are built. Someone posted a link to an article in another thread a while ago about how Enve recommend different lacing patterns based on the hub geometries and how that will affect the behaviour of the wheel in the event of a failure. I can't remember who posted it, but it was an interesting read!

Front wheel cross by 2 even with low spoke counts is superb and works great

You'll get to like it

Honestly I don't like the look of a classic hub laced radially (radial looks better with straightpull)

This sort of thing makes me drooling

For aero purposes (if that's what you're concerned with) I think the value of radial spoking is overrated.

my SES 4.5 with CK hubs are radially laced on the front.
