    which spokes?

    Hey all

    I ended up with some 28 hole Chris king hubs*. I have a pair of Kinlin tb-25s to match.

    What spokes should I use? What lacing pattern? front/rear? Looking for strength.

    * I could have got 32H hubs, but the guy selling them wanted $100 more.

    DT Comps except for DT Revs rear non-drive-side. Cross-2.

    14/15/14, since you only have 28.. 2X, on the rear you can try radial on the front if you wish.

    you could use 15 straight gage for the front. perhaps 15/16/15..

    I built a 15 gage set a long time ago, but It's 36 spoke.
