i;ve never built a wheel
but it occurs to me..
when dishing the rear for the cassette offset, does anyone ever use shorter spokes for the drive side?
seems like if you don;t, you would end up with high tension on the non drive side and low tension on the drive side..
which could lead to collapsability....
also when it;s dished, how is it still straight?
seems like the rim edges wouldn;t be parallel to the ground any more, they would be higher on the non drive side [at the ground], due to higher tension...?
i mean how can you have higher tension on one side than the other, and not distort something?
