I know there's lots of info out there on wheel building, and I've read quite a lot of it, but I'm wondering if you can share thoughts on cross 4 wheels as opposed to cross 3.
Here's the deal. I'm re-building a set of wheels for my Frejus and have pretty much decided, though I hate to do it....to not re-use the original NISI tubular rims for the re-build. They're just in sad shape and they're the model, can't confirm exactly which one, that had the serrations on the braking surfaces. Buzzzz. I don't really like that. So, I'm thinking of, dare I say it, lacing the old Record LF hubs to modern clincher rims and would like to, if I can, re-use the cool old Stella spokes that were in the wheels. They seem fine, DB and stainless I believe. I really don't want to have to buy new spokes if I can avoid it. The old wheels were laced cross 4. All of my other wheels have always been cross three. Any disadvantages to cross 4 wheels? Advantages? Thanks for any input.
