Spoke pattern is up to you and your preferred characteristics
Thanks for that. Is there anywhere that I could find out the caracteristics of each lacing pattern. If I told you I was 59kg, 171cm (5'7") and fancy this wheelset as a climbing wheelset for hill climbs and hilly races what would you recommend. I am not a specific sprinter but can do a fairly decent sprint all the same if that would have any bearing on my choice. Again, I really appreciate your help.
EDIT: Also considering this is a budget lightweight wheelset, with the tims only costing $280, the hubs $110, are Sapim CX ray or DT Aerolite spokes overkill for this build? Any other relatively light spokes that would be more cost effective for my needs? Thanks
A central database would be lovely, but I haven't seen one... There is lots of info somewhere within this gargantuan thread. In principle radial spokes will resist lateral forces, and tangential spokes will handle torque from pedal and braking forces.
2x Non drive, 1x drive side (or radial) I found to work very well with the BHS hubs. 2x/2x resulted in very low ND spoke tension. Radial drive spokes allowed a significantly better balance between DS/ND.
For that build I used Sapim Laser spokes. 30% the cost of a CX-ray. You could even order them from Bikehubstore.
