I am 150 lbs, race cat 4 poorly, and want a good all-around wheelset

I'm considering a build of
new pacenti SL23 rim
ck r45 hubs
24 radial front /28 3x rear
alloy nipples
cx-ray spokes

...and wondered what the hive mind thinks of the options, and recommends for spoke and pattern options

@motorthings- Sounds like a pretty sweet build to me. I cant wait to get my hands on that new Pacenti hoop.

Klabs,
sorry, but there are quite a few parts of that quoted article that are way, way off base.
Equalizing left/right tension on a rear wheel does not help lateral stiffness.
Crossing spokes does nothing for radial stiffness.
Interlacing spokes can reduce spoke head movement, but its benefits are debatable. Many modern wheelsystems, with and without straight pull spokes, forego interlacing due to the results of their testing.
Spoke head movement isn't reduced to cut down on power loss due to friction.
there is more there, but that's all I remember...

Thanks thisisatest, no worries and appreciated. If you don't mind me asking ...

Equalizing left/right tension on a rear wheel does not help lateral stiffness ... other than bracing angle, what would you say helps lateral stiffness and why are builders so intent on using the 16:8 or 2:1 lacings?

Crossing spokes does nothing for radial stiffness ... what would you say helps radial stiffness?

Interlacing spokes can reduce spoke head movement, but its benefits are debatable. Many modern wheelsystems, with and without straight pull spokes, forego interlacing due to the results of their testing ... are you able to expand on this. Were the tests with 2x, 3x and/or 4x lacings?

Spoke head movement isn't reduced to cut down on power loss due to friction ... I do not remember mentioning Spoke head movement, but what would you say helps improve power loss in a wheel?

I just saw this which means that it is impossible to achieve rear wheel bracing angles of 10 degrees unless a 16:8 or 2:1 hub is used (and then it would only achieved on the NDS). Perhaps that why 650 wheels are being talked about again ...
Perhaps front wheel bracing angles are 10 degrees.
So I need to do more reading. There seems to be so much contrary information out there ... :-(

Those U-shape chinese rims are very attractive, so I decided to build myself a pair of training wheels.
I´m 67kg (147lbs) and I live in very flat country.
Here´s my plan:
Front hub: Circus Monkey HRW, FTF 69mm
Spokes: 20 Sapim Laser, radial

About this builds front wheel...
Ebay seller said that radial lacing is allowed, but, well.
If I go 1x. How does it affect ride? Spokes will be a bit longer and it adds weight, but what else?

There is no noticeable difference in ride between radial and 1x lacing.

Klabs, can you show where there is any "power loss" in a wheel? I think the amount of flexing/wind up is very small, and since the the system is basically a spring, is returned for the most part.

Hi Eric, what I have read states spoke to spoke friction consumes energy which apparently is the reason for interlacing. I doubt this is very much and thisisatest has indicated that tests indicate that it is nolonger regarded as an issue ... thanks

Personally, I'm a fan of 2:1 lacing. It does even out tensions to a large degree. If starting with a clean sheet of paper, one could then move the left flange to the left even more, increasing the bracing angle of the left side even more, increasing lateral stiffness, and still have decent tension differential.
The benefits are a product of many changes, not merely evening out tension. Conventionally, evening out tension means moving the left flange in towards the right. This trades lateral stiffness IN BOTH DIRECTIONS for a gain of left spoke tension. If the system does not load the wheel sideways at all (like if it was only going to be used on an indoor trainer), then spoke fatigue life could be improved with this. otherwise, it's a big fat fail.
Radial stiffness is mainly increased by using a rim with a very tall, triangular cross section. Think aero wheels. The newer blunt edge aero wheels give back a little radial stiffness. Whether increasing radial stiffness is a good thing or a bad thing is up to you.
Interlacing test results- I personally have not seen the results. If interlacing was beneficial, all the big companies with their wheelsystems would be doing it. Most are not. Considering all the effort a wheelbuilder puts in to making the spoke as straight as possible from flange to nipple, it is a bit odd that we choose to introduce a kink in the middle.
Power loss in a wheel is not a big issue, I don't believe it is even considered in wheel design. High lateral stiffness, sufficient torsional stiffness, spoke fatigue life, rim fatigue life, rim durability, serviceability, etc. (and aesthetics!) are the main issues.

Getting a pair of H PLUS SON Archetype, and got a pair of hubs salvaged from a pair of Roval, can anyone help me out with getting the right spoke length?

The ERD for the Archetype is 595, this is my first time measuring a straight pull hub, can someone tell me how to properly measure them? Also the rear is a 2:1 so how do I get the right cross/length.

I've used the spocalc, is there anything else better out there?

Thanks

Hi thisisatest, with 16:8 (2:1) what DS lacing (1x, 2x, 3x or even 4x) would you use for >90 kg riders, and what kgf spoke tensions would you expect ...

Although further increasing the NDS bracing angle improves NDS lateral stiffness but won't the DS bracing angle/DS lateral stiffness still be an issue (<4 degrees) ...

Although weight and strength can be issue, to improve DS bracing angle it would appear that we should be using 38 or 50mm deep rims and hubs with a >60mm dia DS flange. It appears that a DS bracing angle of >5 degress might be sufficient, in which case perhaps the 2:1 lacing becomes less important ... what do you think?

If you could get the hubs and rims, what do you think of an 18:9 or even a 20:10 ... thanks

I'd strongly recommend measuring the ERD of each rim individually. H PLUS SON recently changed the design slightly, increasing the ERD. Of the four rims I recently built, I think two were the new size and two were the old (slightly lighter) size. These were all from the same shop, ordered at the same time.

hubs i got are from this pair of roval, need to know how to get the length for the rear as it's a 2:1

I'm starting a build with exactly these hubs using Reynolds Assault rims (ERD 566mm). To my knowledge there is no tool available that can calculate the DS spokes on for these hubs. I was recommended to use x2 and 32 spokes in the DT calculator and subtract 2mm to take into account the adjecent placement of the DS spokes.

For my rims which use Internal nipples I have ordered 270mm for the front wheel, 274mm for the NDS and 260mm for the DS.

Edit: I haven't build the wheels yet as I'm waiting on delivery of the spokes. I'll report back when I know if they fit.

Hi Anders are those Reynolds Assault rims 46mm deep? What is the DS flange diameter of the Roval hub ... thanks
