No. It is extremely common on road and cross bikes.Is it against the rules to run a different spoke count for front and rear?
You would be very hard pressed to tell the difference, even while the bike is standing still.Does it look silly?
As long as the hub drilling matches the rim it is not a problem, and there are no rules. If it works, use it.I'm doing a wheel build. I've got a 36H DM24 rim for the front, and a 32H DX32 rim for the rear. Both are running the same k-rad 2.25 tire.
