HED Jet 60 front wheel, 28 spokes - cross potential?
I have this HED Jet 60 front wheel that has 28 bladed spokes. It seems pretty durable, it looks to me like a basic aluminum rim that happens to have a 60mm carbon cover added on. I feel like most Jet 60 wheels have fewer spokes, especially on the front. Could this wheel withstand the demands of cyclocross? I don't need it for the road anymore but want to keep using it. Aerodynamics may not play a huge role in cross but this wheel would at least probably look pretty savage.
