|I would like to build a pair of 32 spoke wheels for racing and training but I haven't decided whether to go 3 cross or radial. What would be the ideal set up? Advice welcome.|

|... with a 32 spoke wheel, there wouldn't be any significant weight savings with radial spoking (assuming front wheel... or non driveside rear) but you would probably sacrifice a bit (to a lot) of lateral strength and durability (windup)... go for 3 cross for durability and strength.
Remain In Light.

|3 cross will yield a little stronger wheel and you won't risk breaking out your hubs at the eyelets. The weight difference is infintesimal.|
|Agree with above - 3x good. nm||Leisure|
