Removing every second spoke pair?
I have seen this done on bikes to reduce weight, mainly on front wheels but also on rears with apparently no ill effect. I have a Dahon folding bike with 20" wheels and am thinking of doing it to the front wheel, it currently has 28 spokes. I am hoping that with the small wheel size, relatively tight spacing and given that most of the weight is on the rear wheel it will be ok.
Anyone have any experience doing this? I am comfortable respoking wheels so it is more a structural question.
