The rims are all in need of replacement as well as spokes from the heat damage. But they were 3X patterns except for one special 3X by radial on a drive wheel for my Ochsner. If I was doing any touring, it would definitely be four cross patterns for those wheels. The 4X deals with loads better than the 3X (more appropriate for race type wheels). JMHO, MH
Wow, sorry to hear about the damage. Just a bit of old school info. Falerio Masi specified all his house built bikes have 36h 4x wheels, even here in the US.
