Wheel with woven spokes.

Has anyone even seen a wheel laced up with spokes that are wrapped around each other?
It's hard to describe, every two adjacent spokes are wrapped around each other.
I found it at my local bike kitchen and put it on the truing stand, they're just about perfect.
I'll put up pictures later if anyone's interested.

I ran a set laced like that on my MTB, heavy but worth it.

Wow, that pattern is beautiful, defiantly more intricate than the one that I saw.

Thanks, I'll see if my thread can be merged into that one.
Also, here is the link to the wheels that were shown earlier in the thread.

Ezra,

We have (or had) one of these at the shop. It was built with a really craptastic rim and hub but it was pretty.

That might be the one that I was talking about.
BTW do you still want the Schwinn cruiser frame that's in the shed? You have a hold on it from a little while back.
