    Or, build "November-style" and run CX-Ray up front and non-drive rear, Laser or Race drive-side rear.

    What's the advantage to running Lasers for DS rear?

    saves money. the rear DS spokes see the "dirtiest" air, and bladed spokes there give no aero benefit. Also, cheaper to replace if you suck the chain between the spokes and cassette.

    Ah, ok. Yeah, I probably wouldn't do that on a wheel I'm building. I'm either going to acknowledge that there's no meaningful aero advantage and just go Laser or I'm going to use CX Rays for the build enjoyment and aesthetic appreciation of the final product. And the bit of claimed additional strength. I just have to decide if that's worth $100.
