(Edit to add: oops! I didn't think that the original pic was that large... I swapped it for something a bit more palatable. Sorry. - mmd)

3 cross, double twist, inside pulling spokes. It's a track hub, so no dish.

Peace,

That's some fancy spokin' Rob. Do the little jewels on the rim light up, 'cuz that would be California Cool.

I wish. The little gems and silver triangles are vestiges from the scraper wheel set I made and rocked for a while.

The idea is to make the wheel look like custom car rims. :) Rolling on 27"s, What? Hehe.

Peace,

The twist I originally learned as an alternative to wire and solder. The twist significantly stiffens the wheels "feel", but it moves more than a wired and soldered cross.

Peace,
Robert

An idea we blatantly stole from the O, Baby!

Peace,

#4: Creative, but I suspect not good for tuning, or for longevity.

That wheel is more than 15 years old. It has seen 2-3,000 miles per year. It has been raced on and is now a commuter wheel. I ride the bike daily.

It trues simply, holds true well, and has NEVER come even slightly out of round, despite being a track racing wheel, then a commuter wheel.

Brass nipples, and 14 straight gauge spokes.

Peace,
Robert
