No biggie, but it does appear that you're running your front wheel backwards. Typically the wheel is built so the inner spokes pull during forward rotation and most wheel builders orient the hub so the logo appears right side up to the rider from the seated position. :wink:

There's another one I have never heard before.
You can teach an old (fart) dog something new.
Will use it to gain fame wealth and women.
Thanks Mr Zero.
