I'm lacing up my new front wheel, Kinlin XR-300 and American Classic Micro 58 24 hole, and am doing a 1x pattern.
I took a look at a set of Xero XR-3 wheels that I had sitting around because I knew the front wheel had a 1x pattern also. I noticed that both the trailing and leading spokes come from the inside of the hub. So all the spoke heads are on the outside.
When laced this way the leading spokes to cross behind the trailing spoke and actually contact it. If the trailing spoke is laced with the head in it won't have contact with the trailing spoke.
Is this how all 1x wheels are laced? Is there any reason why I shouldn't lace my wheel this same way?
