Tried lacing them 3 cross like normal hubs and something just Isn’t right, also 6-7 spoke threads are all messed up now and stick to the nipple and turn with it. Any help is greatly appreciated

Pretty sure they’re supposed to be laced 5 cross. Google image search a built wheel

They are 5 cross. Literally just put the spokes in the hub and line them up to the holes in the rim that they go to. Easiest wheels to lace until it comes time to true them and half the spokes want to spin about🤣

I’m afraid you’ll have to start all over again though. The logo on the hub doesn’t line up with the valve hole

It's just an OCD thing for people who frequently build wheels

Ah I see, this is only the second set of wheels I have built myself so the straight pull is new to me. Pretty easy I just had the pattern backwards the first time.

You won't have to touch that wheel for years. My Tree hubs are on Birdcages, which are quite a bit weaker than Ribcages, and they've been completely solid. Straight pull is legit.

And if you work in a shop, more of an industry standard to show uniform ability and professionalism.
