Hey guys, what are the advantages of having radial lace spokes? I've seen bikes with only the front wheel radial laced, why? Thanks!

If u ride flat u won´t slip between the spokes with ur foot so easy..
and if u ride street, the curbs/rails won´t damage ur spokes as it would happend with a 4crossed wheel..

no, it would damage them worse. Imagine a kinked square rail. By kinked, I mean a flat-down rail. Imagine the corner of it where it's welded snagging on spoke and just yoinking it. It would bend it horribly, and **** your wheel over. With 4 cross, it can't happen. By the way, it's proven that 4 cross laced under the third is the strongest build.
