36H and two cross in the front???

for a 36H high flange hub, with open pros rims and double butted spokes.
i'm thinking of a 2 cross lacing just for the hell of it. will this be stronger than a radial lacing and weaker than a 3 cross....i've googled around some and didn't seem to find much on 2 cross lacings.

The strength difference between 2X and 3X is negligable. If you want to play around, go for it.
