• I have a 32 hole rim with spokes the correct length for a standard 3x pattern. Are there any alternative lacing patterns available in this situation? I saw the 3 leading, 3 trailing pattern looked good but that won't work for a 32 hole rim. I wanted to try a 2 leading, 2 trailing design, but the spoke calculator said the spokes I have will be 10mm too long.

    Any idea what you would call the design in the attached picture? Is it practical, I couldn't find any info on it.

  • ha, good question. I think it will irritate a friend, so seeing his (over)reaction to it will make it worth it.
