I was about to build up an XTR front hub radially, for my recumbent. 32h 26". I noticed that the
literature from Shimano says the warranty is voided by this. Has any one ever cracked an XTR
(HB-M950?) flange by lacing radially?

Thanks, JV

I have built several radially spoked front wheels for my 'bents.

If yours is LWB, you will know that there is not much weight on the front wheel.

I've broken a Dura-Ace "9s" front hub. It was also a 32H, also laced radially. Lasted about
4000 miles.

Why chance it? Just lace it 3 cross and not worry about it. What will radial do that 3 cross won't?

Oh, Peter! You know as well as I do how ego-driven are many road cyclists If not that, they think
the lighter, shorter spokes will affect their performance.
