Dish.. the spokes on the drive side get nearly Vertical, to pull the hubshell over to make room for all those "speeds" ..

and that is not a stable balance, side to side..

IGH build stronger rear wheels because they only need 1 cog ..and are not dished

Want a walk in and carry it out Machine assembled wheel Check one of the Seattle LBS'
