I'm in the process of ordering a 650B wheelset for my gravel bike.
(Carbon rims if that matters)
I decided i'll go for 28 spokes rear and 24 front, but 2 cross vs 3 cross, this is hieroglyphs for me.
I have tried to read up on this but i feel no wiser.
Any suggestions?
I am 85Kgs and bike is 9 - 9.5Kgs pending on fork used (3T Luteus or Lauf Grit)

Wich hubs do you plan to use ? Straight pull don't let you choice, DT 240 28h is 3 cross for example.
