Hi Scott,

Thanks for the link,
I like wire wheels but I like balloon wheels at the same time. Those wheels 
seem to be a bit of both.
I am also into restoring 80's road racing bicycles (often ride them to work 
and back) so lacing up wheels is something I do.
Lacing/truing wheels can be both interesting and frustrating!
Those wheels look neat with the radial spoke pattern. Bikes sometimes have 
the front wheel laced with a radial pattern, but not the rear wheel as 
pedaling induces similar loads as trying to use brakes on you wheels.
Anyway, if I ever get finished, I hope to fit wire wheels.......but that is 
a long way off........
