I ride 32- and 36-spoke wheels exclusively and have not desire to switch to reduced spoke counts, paired spokes, etc. The higher the spoke count, the greater the wheel's strength-to-weight ratio. I favor 3X, although 2X front is probably acceptable. Radial spoking puts one hellacious load on the hub flange.
