Flawed concept

They are built with Wheelsmith quality so they must be OK. I'd like to know about the one with the "center flange."
Wheel strength and stiffness comes from the number of spokes and the bracing angle. Taking some of those spokes and putting them on a center flange is basically a flawed concept. It would be one thing if that design brought a lot of alternative features to the party, but it doesn't.
