Rollin on 28 in the front 36 in the rear
New to the Clyde forum, I am 6'0 about 205. Anyway, after reading on the Clyde forum about everyone having hand built wheels and destroying a Ksyrium Elite rear wheel, rebuilding it, destroying it again I am about to purchase some Hand Built's from Colorado Cyclist. I am going to do Mavic CXP33's with Ultegra, 36 hole in the rear 14/15 spokes, brass nipples and have this question.
Does anyone see a problem with 28 2 cross in the front? Would that be to weak. I am not trying to save on weight, I honestly think that 28 hole looks better in the front than 32 hole. Knock on wood, have never even had to get my front wheel trued Since I started riding 3,000 miles ago.
Just wanted opinions
