Default front wheelset RADIAL LACING pattern for CX

newbie lang po..
sa Cyclocross

Will this R500 wheelset fit this kind of discipline?
it's a road bike 700c wheelset.
i am more concerned with the front lacing pattern..
will it withstand the abuse while doing trails and hardpack and semi-rocky terrains?



i am planning to convert my urban SS / Fixie into Cyclocross bike para naman makaranas ako ulit mag trail.. since eto ang fit sa budget ko, i will be sticking into it...

sabi sa specs, ang maximum na kaya nya ihandle na tire size is 19c to 25c, but i am planning to fit a continental cyclocross tire w/ 35c tire width....

:thinking::thinking::thinking:

Radial lacing on both sides is for front rim brake wheels only. Radially laced spokes are incapable of transferring any braking or driving force from the hub to the rim.

Not suitable for: mountain bikes with disk rotors. Many hubs are not recommended for use with radial lacing as it puts extreme force on the flanges, which may break off. Royce Engineering also forbid radial lacing on their lightweight hubs because the stretching force affects how the bearings seat. This probably applies to all hubs in some way, but affects very light hubs more than chunkier ones.

The benefits: largely cosmetic, some people prefer the look of radial spoking. The spokes are also generally about 20mm shorter than for a 2- or 3-cross pattern, making them lighter and possibly more aerodynamic. The wheel should also be marginally stronger laterally (side-to-side) because of the shorter spoke and larger angle between hub and rim. These performance advantages are marginal at best.

The disadvantages: increased hub load over crossed patterns may cause failures or bearing problems (in practice we have not seen any bearing problems on the hubs we most commonly lace radially which are Chris King R45, American Classic Micro 58, and DT Swiss 240/190/180. All these hubs are approved for radial lacing). Radial lacing also produce a harsher ride over rough terrain - it's not recommended for cyclocross wheels.

Yung front wheel ko radial yung lacing, at V-brakes ang gamit ko. So far ok pa naman yung akin (wala pang bent spoke at isang beses ko palang na-true after almost 2 years of use), 98% of the time sa road ko siya ginagamit, yung 2% sa Forbidden trails dagdagan pa ng kaunting drops mula sa gutter at baba ng hagdan every now and then.

is it possible na puede palitan yung lacing pattern (from radial to 2-cross) ng front wheelset na ito... (of course, sure na papalitan ng mas mahabang spokes...) - have anybody experienced converting your radially laced wheelset into another lacing pattern?
