    I currently weigh about 150, so I think I can get away with a 2x/radial lacing. The Novatec Force sets come with 2x lacing on the rear all around. That would actually make things easier because I can just mimic the lacing pattern from my existing wheelset for the drive side.

    I'll check out that calculator, too. Thanks Scrod!

    No prob. Half-radial lacing is super cool IMO - just keep in mind that you won't be able to flip your wheel if the threads on one side of your hub crap out because radial drive side = explosions.

    Let me know if you need spokes!

    Why do a half radial on an evenly dished wheel?

    Go for it yummy! I recommended this to alex on his 722 roadie and his turned out great!
    ~But I do have to warn you, that for a track rear, I would only stick to 2 cross to help the wheel last long under torque.

    Aesthetics mostly. But you seriously compromise durability as a track rear. You're all good through if you go SS.

    That's a good point on the flippity-floppity functionality of the wheel. I'll just stick with 2x/2x on the rear wheel.

    That may be a better idea if you ever want to flip the wheel.

    With all due respect, Scrod but wouldn't the half radial side be more tensioned than the drive side on a dished wheel?

There's no difference other than size between the three models.
    I just saw they had a retail store in SF, so hopefully I'll get to see for myself.

    The retail store in SF is great. They'll fix up anything that happens for free while you wait. If they can't fix it, they'll replace it.

    If you live in the area, it's very convenient. They back the lifetime warranty.

    Should I knock out a century tomorrow. Heat index is slated to be around 115-120 degrees Fahrenheit.

    As long as it it is steel, yes.

    Actually, that is a good point. The fork is one of Scrod's I05TRs and it is carbon/aluminum but I was assuming the dropouts were steel. Maybe not.

    I've had two carbon forks and both of them seemed to have carbon dropouts (although I could easily be wrong on that, they just sound hollow and are black when the paint comes off). Either way, if you're not using a quick-release there's no point.

    Would not file. Even though, there is suggestive evidence that the forkend is steel.

    Albeit, said evidence is one's gut.

    Put a magnet to check if it is steel.

    I could be wrong but I think the fork ends on the I05TR are aluminum.

    The other limiting factor is that it is hard to take a file to a nice new piece of bikeage. I don't even want to cut the steerer. Thanks Scrod.

    I have a Weinmann DP18 to IRO hub wheelset and just got Alex rims (D450 front, DA16 rear) to Formula hubs wheelset from my brother.

    Which should I use?
