Select Spoke Lacing Pattern
Show Details
Selecting a cross pattern for your wheels is critical in terms of ride quaility. Our shop personally recommends a 3 cross pattern for wheels, because of its overall strength and durability. 2 cross uses a shorter spoke which equates to less weight and increased lateral stability, but decreased durability.2 Cross is not recommended for riders 180+ LBS
