Bladed spokes
« on: October 17, 2019, 06:07:53 AM »
Lets spark a bit the forum.
Any thoughts about using bladed spokes?  Super light weight  ( almos titanium weight  ) and stiff at the same time.
Share something people.

I wouldn't use them in freestyle.  Seems more prone to lateral flex.  Wasn't the design intent for bladed spokes to give a slight aerodynamic advantage to road bikes?
