Hey Madcow,

I was enjoying viewing these, and wanted to ask you, what factor most affects your decision to build radial fronts and rear non-drive sides? Is it purely at the request of your client? Do you find yourself choosing crossed fronts/non-drives mostly with respect to rider weight/non-racing applications?

I’m curious if non-drive rear spokes loosening up in any previous wheel-builds has played a part, too.

Cheers for the fun reading and great visuals!
