    If I have a bunch of offsite links pointing to foo and then put a 301 redirect to www on the site, will I loose any link juice?

    Can you rephrase the question? It is a bit confusing at the moment. I'm sure that most of the community knows the answer to that question, but we need to understand it first.

    I am not sure about your problem. Make it a bit more communicative so that we can understand your situation easily.

    No, you won't have any issues. But please make to that if you are backlinking your domain without www then follow that.

    I'm backlinking http foo and will redirect to http www foo -- (I can't post domains/urls yet I apologize for the obfuscation).
    This shouldn't be a problem?

    If you just set up a redirect you will lose some of the juice.

    What you really want to do is to set up the redirect AND add the preferred prefix for your domain in WMT
