    After researching how to lace my wheels I decided to go with a 4 cross pattern. Learned how to measure and found a spoke calculator and ordered spokes. Just got them in the mail last week and started building. Took 4 tries before finally getting it and youtube has nothing for 4 cross lacing... I don't know if it's okay and I'm not finding pictures to check my work. What do you all think? Does this look okay? My next set will definitely be 3 cross..

    I think four cross is the way to go on a motorized bike. Nobody wants busted spokes.

    Looks fine. with a small flange hub like yours, The first cross at the hub flange strengthens the flange, as well as preventing the spoke heads from breaking, giving you a stiffer, stronger wheel.
