    New 20 spoke PVM's

    Im sure youve already seen this SSBLADE ,so good thing you didnt order those 10 spokes i guess hUH ?lol

    JUst about at the wire wheel level for SPOKAGE .MAkes an old 3 spoke look plain as hell

    This is the fourth generation of forged wheels made by PVM following the general trend towards FEM calculated wheels. While maintaining the weight reduction achieved in the third generation of design of the 10Y design, attention was turned to a new and exciting visual design. PVM has captured the essence of this with the design of the 20 spoke wheel. This design should be in production and available by the end of January 2005.

    It's kind of like sharing a secret that we're having more fun than those poor people stuck in thier cages. And to the ones who don't wave back, it's OK. I wasn't waving at you, I was waving at your bike."

    Radial pattern spokes. I can't figure this out. Pure radial spokes like this transfer the driving and braking forces from the hub to the rim via pure bending forces and put a lot of strain on the metal. The three spokers get around this by being a large cross section hollow design. Some of the others use an angled offset style to put the spokes under compression and tension loads. Like these Marchesini wheels...

    I know there's a fair number of wheels with radial spokes out there these days but I always cringe a little knowing how much bending forces are at work on those little spokes.... And through the bending and winding up as the spokes bend the high tensile forces on the metal of the spokes.

    I know they are all tested and engineered to withstand the loads but from a purely technical viewpoint it's not a great way to utilize the metal.

    ..... or am I just being jealous that someone is getting them....
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.

    The biggest problem with motorcycles is the NUT that connects the seat to the handle bars.
