    32h vs. 36h

    As I have no idea, what are the ride feel differences between 32h spoked rims and 36h spoked rims considering the same style rim is being used? Obviously, the 36h will be stronger (if being built by the same builder), but will there be a difference in ride feel? Thanks.

    You MIGHT feel a slight weight difference. Which means it would take more power to get the wheel up to speed, but it will hold it better. But probably not.

    A 36 hole setup properly built up will be stiffer than a 32 setup properly built by the same person.

    Though, I have to admit, the wheels on the dmr and 930 are 32 and 3x. The 24" will have 36 4x.

    the 36 would technically also be easier to true as there is less space between each spoke, it's easier to finely true your wheel. this is in addition to the minimal weight difference that only your scale would notice, or you would psychologically perceive.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I may be looking into a set of 36h wheels...
