I've built 32 and 36 spoked wheels before that are still true and tensioned.
I have a 20h Ritchey road front hub that was never built into a wheel.
If I get a 20h rim -I'm thinking the DTSwiss RR 585- to go with it, can I build it with plain gauge 2.0 stainless steel spokes in a radial pattern, and not have the wheel explode?
I'm figuring each spoke might have to be tensioned to 120Kg or so, making the wheel difficult to build, making me round up nipples, causing spoke torsion and possibly overstressing the spokes during road riding. Or would the rim and hub flange give out first?
