Default Are you running 12gauge spokes in front?

Im building a custom frame with a degoverned 2.5 HF. Im running 24's and im going to run a 12 gauge chinese Heavy duty wheel in the rear with pirate sproket hub adapter. Im gonna run a disc brake up front but trying to save a few bucks. I can find 24" 14gauge freewheel hub wheels with cassettes at the swapmeet for $10. Or spend $50+ on a heavy duty wheel with a freewheel hub to mount the threaded disc adapter.
Im not sure if I need a 12 gauge wheel up front or not. The bike is going to have suspension forks and fatty up front. Its not gonna be a curb jumper but more of a low pro cafe. Top speed maybe 30-35mph.

Are you guys running 12 gauge on both wheels?
