While logging onto Bike Forums, I came across an article regarding tubeless wheels, where, in place of spoke holes, there were extended "ears" of metal drilled at right angles to accomodate spokes!. The spokes were directly opposite each other,so in essence two spokes attached to one projection. The hub too was unique, in that there was no right angle bend in the spoke.The spokes were arranged radially, and the tensioning arrangement was located an inch or so from the spoke head. I think that the total number of spokes for both the front and back wheel was 36 ? Many hours of surfing the internet has drawn a blank. Has anyone else come across this most interesting article ?
