Sir, do you know about

The gentleman left the garage open, we all mounted our respective steeds, and rode off. You could still hear the hog a mile away. Nice guy, but I don't think he's going to be riding that 12-speed very much!

One reason for such a configuration is that it slightly increases the angle of the drive-side spokes (a good thing, required-tension-wise), and because the spoke holes are farther apart than on a smaller diameter flange, they're somewhat less likely to fail (as one Record small-flange hub I rode did). In addition, the large flange increases the spoke angle for any crossed pattern, making it closer to tangent, which also reduces the chances of flange failure.

Well, I've heard of and now seen one, that's why I pointed it out! I also suggested to the guy it was worth some coin, so don't expect the bike to pop up on cnj CL for a bargain any time soon. Actually, it sounded like the owner had no interest in selling. Wish one of us had brought a camera, as it was an interesting frameset.

Oh, and for the motorcycle enthusiasts, the Harley was a knucklehead. I'd heard of but not seen one of those in person either!
