28 hole rims

6/20/2012 7:00 PM

i just saw that the kink viridian front hub had a 28 hole option, which led me to try and find a 28 hole rim, which i couldnt seem to find. so:

1) does any company make 28 hole rims?

OR

2) when lacing 28 spokes do you skip holes, if so how would you go about that.

not really. 28 would probably be best suited for racing and smooth park riding

i would consider riding one in the front, not with any of those rims though.

Wasn't saying it should be done, i'd be fine if rims went back to 48. I'm just interested in seeing the amount of abuse it would be able to take
