    hi ,

    just to know if there is a real difference between 32 and 36 spokes for the rear wheel;

    I always "fold" (sorry i don't know the good term) my wheel...(32 spokes)..So is the 36 spokes stronger

    thx

    It'll be stronger, yes, and the weight difference is minimal. Go for it (or go crazy and get one of those Halo Combat rims with 48 spokes...).

    more = stronger

    For a rear trials wheel, 36 spokes is an excellent choice. More spokes = stiffer wheel. You can get most of the good rims in 36H too, like DX32, Rhyno XL, Mavic 721. I say go for it:)
