    In brief, the conclusion of the study is:

    "A typical bicycle wheel is a robust structure with very good fatigue life. Theoretically, the hub/spoke/rim system will work in bicycling applications with very little problems."

    I find it surprising that 2x is stiffer than 3x and 4x. It makes sense, but I didn't think it would be a matter of building a wheel with durability at the expense of stiffness (lateral stiffness).

    For those whohave not had enough with the Duke paper or Jobst Brandt, there's also a book being sold on Ebay, The Spoken Wheel, written by an aerospace engineer cyclist. He derives formulas and applies them to a huge variety of configurations. $12.00 BIN, and there are a few copies.

    I think it's great, but well, you know, engineers ....
