|Will it get any stiffer if i build wheels with DT revolution instead of competition or will the wheels just get lighter.
Perhaps they even will be less stiff with revolution??

|Think of the spoke as a funny-shaped bolt. A thinner bolt (REVO) will stretch more on overload, hence less stiff. You can stiffen with lacing patterns, highest possible spoke tension.|

|Don't forget that rim stiffness is part of the equation. In general, the stiffer the rim, the thinner the spokes you can get away with.|| |
