Is this possible? Can I lace an 18 hole hub one (1x) cross? I don't think so, because it has nine (uneven number) spokes per side. It might be possible if I put all the spoke heads in or out, but I can't alternate the heads. I have an 18h hub and an 18h rim. I would radial lace it, but shimano does not waranty their hubs for radial lacing. Am I crazy?
The worst part of this story - I put all the dimensions into Sheldon Brown's spoke calculator, had the spokes cut to length, and now I don't think I can use them. Grr.
