I have built a few disc wheels and I tend to follow the adage that "trailing spokes on the inside of the flange" but I was wondering if any thought that the disc sides pokes should be the opposite.
Sheldon Brown's site says:
"Derailer rear wheels should be laced with the trailing spokes running up along the inside of the flange."
"Note: This is not an important issue! There is a sizable minority of good wheelbuilders who prefer to go the other way around, and good wheels can be built either way."
Which leads me to believe it doesn't matter. But I distinctly remembering seeing an insert that comes with Shimano hubs which explicitly tells you which side the spokes should go on, and I believe it was different depending on whether it was disc or not.
It seems like the disc side would get the opposite forces as the drive side, but would it? I would think the hub shells are stiff enough to transfer the forces equally to each flange.
Any thoughts? Should I not worry about it as per Sheldon "Flange Side Doesn't Matter" Brown?
