strong wheels for a fattie

I built a set of Origin8 Track attack 32h wheels for myself yesterday. I can't count how many times I had to tweak a wheel last year.....not this year







if I bend these 3 wall Deep V wheels, I shouldn't be riding

They look nice but the way the spokes (top pic) exit the hub holes, looks sort of loose like you didn't bend the spokes into place correctly. Could just be the pic or angle but it looks like there is a radius on the spoke at the top hole rather than sitting flat against the hub flange.


BTW, sweet looking wheels. I've had thoughs of building a rear chukker for my roadie. Not fo strength but because they look so coool!

it's a custom lace I sent the spokes through the hub, front back, front back. for Strength, and a cool look
