    Stan's Arch MK3 - 2x vs 3x lacing

    Hi,

    Does anyone have any experience lacing Stan's Arch MK3 29" rims in a 28 spoke 2 cross pattern?

    I've always run 3 cross with no durability issues but I'm struggling to find the spokes I want in the correct length.

    From what I've read the rim/nipple stress is higher in a 2 cross lacing pattern so has anyone seen any differences in overall durability or longevity?

    Ta.

    I slightly prefer 3x cross for 28 hole rims, but 2x is just fine. Make sure the spokes are long enough to enter the head of the nipple when tightened to ensure their strength.
