Has anybody tried it? what would be the main disadvantages?

I am pretty sure that you can't do it.
you can lace a 32 holes rim to a 36 hole hub, but not the way around.
I really hope that you weren't seriously thinking about trying that.
theres been some "pinkbike"esque threads in the downhill forum lately, jeeze lthumbsdown:
dude, that's just plain ghetto
just wondernig...i was selling a 36 rim to a guy and he only had 32 holed hun....he just wanted to know....
well posting in the tech section where it belongs helps as well
So wait, you can lace 36 hole hubs to 32 hole rims? How?
4 invisible spokes u dummy
i did that with my back wheel and it worked well until it became out of true. but i had no problems at all.
who needs spokes. i use duct tape.
funny story...I took an intense phys ed. class [bike touring] as a complementary...and my teacher was giving a bike seminar on quick fixes in case we get stranded on the road...he told us basically that in the event we break a spoke, we should duck tape it to retain its strength and to be able to continue riding....WOW
chill y'all, its easier than you think. it definitely won't create as strong of a wheel, but you just need to leave out gaps for 4 spokes:
-drive side leading
-drive side trailing
-non-drive side leading
-non-drive side trailing
that is, providing you're doing a standard 3/4 cross lacing. try to space them as evenly as possibly. but good luck calculating your spoke length.
here come the weight weenies buying 36 hole hubs (more holes) and 32 hole rims, or vise versa (36 hole rim w/ 32 hole hub)
you would just calculate it by assuming the rim is 32 holed...but then again the cross will be different...actually longer...so youd most likely have to add 2mm per spokes
your looking about 3-4 mm added per spoke over a 3x length, it sucks, its flexy and doesnt hold up, looks kinda cool but thats about it, also its a little bit of a pain to get it laced without screwing up, but its doable, and no bike shop will do it for you, unless you know someone personally who will do it for a twelve pack or so.
