triplet wheel building
I am planning to build a training/club race wheelset for next season using DA 7800 hubs, Aeroheads and haven't really decided on spokes. Probably DT Revo front and competition rear.
The question is, I am planning to lace the rear using a triplet pattern (eg Campy G3, Fulcrum 2:1) to even out tension. I will be using a 36h hub and rim with 18+9 spokes, with one hole left out for each triplet group. My question is would this, if built well, be reasonably stiff and reliable?
