I have a wheel build in my future for the following two reason:
2nd place in a clyde race earned me a credit for the labor,
my current wheels suck as$.
I go 210lbs most days, crash a lot and think that 20 spokes are not enough for me.
I'm thinking 3 cross spoke pattern (my36 in the rear?). A decent hub I can overhaul myself, and a tough as heck rim.
Yes, I searched. Yes, I know that opinions will differ and my assumption that 20 spokes aren't enough will be challenged. As well as my asusmption that I need 36 spokes in the rear.
Without starting a fight where everyone starts ragging on others' wheel choice, can you all provide me with some advice?
I would ask at the shop where I am going to get them built, but it is inconveniently located for me to just drop in. I don't need the latest thing, just something that will last and not slow me down too much.
