    lacing 24hole hubs

    I have a pair of suntour superbe pro track hubs and want to lace them to velocity deep v rims. The only issue is the rear hub is a 24hole hub and I was wonder what type of spokes to use and what lacing pattern would provide the strongest set-up. The front is 32 hole so I want to lace them radially. Before anyone ask why a 24 rear, this is what my friend brought back from Japan. They are NOS hubs and he got them super cheap. So if anyone has some advice I would appreciate any info and help. Oh by the way I weight about 170lb if that means anything.

    Thanks,
    Gregg

    Most likely 2x for the strongest setup, which will be plenty strong wuth the Deep V rims (unless you're extremely heavy). Nice hubs btw I raced on them back in the day.

    What's that formula to tell you the correct number of spoke crossings?

    max crosses = #holes/9 [truncated]

    eg. 24/9= 2.667 = 2 cross

    Cool, thanks. So this sets you up with as close to a tangential spoke/flange angle as possible?

    Holy @#$%! I didn't even know there was an equasion. I'm just talking from experience. 2x tends to do well with 99% of all 24-28 spoke builds. One of the few exceptions would be an outrageously large flange hub.
