So my question: does your cross-laced pattern add lateral stability to a wheel or is it more designed for longitudinal stressors? I'm thinking of going cross-laced with beefier spokes on all three wheels but only if you think it would help.
Well ya asked the right folks,,,YES to all your questions plus warranty...,,you r X-laced wheels IMHO are dang strong inALL directions,,our beefier spokes and lacing techniques will enhance the strength and durability,,,
We efssentially Blue print your wheels.
Thanks for your inquiry
