In my experience 32 hole 3-cross pattern is proven strong and light with DB spokes. (mtb-ing) I have not had problems with 32 spoke and up wheels, but lightweight ones with 24 bladed spokes for example I can destroy pretty quickly. Not so easy with a 32spoke, 3-cross pattern. Disclaimer. I am 200lbs, and ride mostly rough singletrack. SKPCIs there one that is stronger than the other? I guess it would be hold up longer or take more weight.
Does anyone know?
