I ride a folding bike . That is irrelevant to my question. I just needed to get in the door.
I ride a bike with 20 x 1 3/8 wheels. I recently bought a 20 x 1 3/8 complete front wheel with spokes that instead of criss crossing go in a straight line from the eyelet on the hub to the hole in the rim.
No spoke crosses another spoke. (Happy Easter)
I am not complaining because this wheel wasn't made by someone who crochets in their spare time.
But as a front wheel to be used on a very fast steel folding street bike, if I whack the front brake on, will the whole wheel twist like a jam roll and compress to the point that I need save a search on ebay for dentures? ie Where is the structure on this wheel? Is it just designed to spin spin spin?
