Cross Laced 24" Wheelbuild
I'm building a pair of 24" wheels today. The rims are Alienation Runaways which are designed to have the spokes cross laced = going from the left side of the hub to the right side of the rim, and right to left... The spokes have an extra 'cross' where they pass eachother laterally.
I'm wondering what kind of issues I'll run into with getting the initial tension up. I'm used to bringing the tension up on one side and then increasing the other side to dish the wheel evenly, but this wont work for these rims. Any suggestions or experience?
