Cane Creek and others now make their wheels like this. You need a special little spoke wrench to adjust, but my set has seen a couple thousand miles and is still pretty true. On the Cane Creeks, the hole in the rim is only the width of the straight spoke...more advantages of this design. Classic Content: They are the wheels on my 2000 lugged 853 Bob Jackson Arrow Head.
