if you can, get new spokes, period.

if you can't, try different cross patterns on each side. very unconventional, but might work fine. also, that would put more crosses on disc brake side, which is the side that takes more stress from disc brake, so that is good. what were you trying before? 3 cross, 32 hole? if so, then try 2cross on small flange, 4cross on big flange.

if that is what you already tried, AND you can't get new spokes... have any old wheels with low miles and plenty spokes?

Hi
thank you, I had tried all many combinations as I can, and no one get a good match...
but well.. this have like 2 weeks ago, I send it to a good mechanic and put 263 spokes, with 3 cross, en each side and... that works perfect :D
I only spendt 35 usd in new spokes and ensambling job, now I have a horrible trouble to get my juicy 3 brakes bleed..... they are very anoying to bleed... lets see what happen...
thanks for the answer anyway
greets from Mexico

pues todo bien. será mejor que tenga 3cross. las fuerzas de un freno de disco requiere un ángulo bien agulo. fíjate que los rayos tienen mucha tensión y ya no más.

con ese de los juicys... ja, falta de eso que yo odio a los hydraulics. tengo shimano lx y adelante de conseguir esos.. me queda con avid bb7s.

en cual parte de mexico vives? es primera vez que he podido practicar mi castellano hablando de bicis!

jaja lo hablas bastante bien, ahora práctica leyéndolo :D son 3 cruces por lado todos están igual, y tienen mucha tensión pintan bien. Tengo casi 2 meses armando mi bici y hoy debo acabarla, pero tuve que cortar la manguera trasera y no se como llenarla ahora... Sí, son muy complicados... Pero me los dieron nuevos y baratos y quedaron con mi presupuesto, sólo 105 usd. Vivo en la capital méxico city, and u? How bad my english is?

haha, yes I have a lot of errors, but... If its understendable, isnt bad at all, I have a lot of fríends in US. So I practice a little. I HAD FINNISHED MY BIKE! It feels very good! And think that doesnt look bad jeje. Yes my hubs are asímetric (? Así se dice?) but with same síze spokes aré ok
