    Radial spoking makes the wheel stiffer, so it probably would exacerbate transmission of road vibration. Steve

    Try using a gel tape or gel pads under the tape or in combination. I used those kictzy foam pads under my bar tape for a while until a Specailized Bar Phat kit came into my custotidy. (I lost my spell checker then)
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    A carbon fork doesn't completely get rid of the buzz. Some of the other ideas sound good though, esp. the double taping.

    Gel tape.. double tape.. carbon fork.. different stem.. carbon bars. There are quite a few ways to reduce road buzz.
