Default Re: Spoke lacing, Reinforcement, Etc.

I've seen it looks nice, but structurally, I'd have to say either zip ties, or wire.

When you wrap a spoke around another it makes for funny load paths.
When you wrap or tie them, it reduced the loaded column by around half, which doubles the compression stiffness.
