    Fat bike wheel parts

    I already have my 65mm carbon 32 spoke hole rims. I already have my hope fatsno hubs 150x15 front 32 hole and 197 x12 rear 32 hole. I have silver brass sapim nips and washers. I have not purchased my spokes yet. I will be using dt swiss dt comp or dt race comp spokes. I just really wanted to get some thoughts on spokes and lacing patterns. Not worried about light weight. Just a good no nonsense wheel set that will take the abuse they are about to get.

    Comps are great. 2x or 3x is fine.

    Thank you sir. I was leaning towards dt comps and 2 cross lacing, just did not know if fat wide hubs needed 3 cross.

    3x revolutions/lasers. Don't think I've ever had a problem from my fat-wheels (knock on wood). They definitely get abused and are not "soft-snow-only". The fat rims are so wide that they impact a massive amount of stiffness IME, you can lighten up the spokes a bit and not sacrifice anything.

    Do you need nipple washers when building carbon rims with chrome brass nipples

    Some you do and some you don't. It is manufacture dependent. Whisky is one that requires them.
