Jon you are mistaken - that IS the real photo honest. Just a lot of shadows.

No I told you - SHADOWS!

The spokes are in fact real pimpy er...ultra burileoum metal matrix air sprung affairs with marrowbone centres. Very light weight and forgiving due to their incredible torsional strength to sprung tenso-ability.

Waiting for them to be invented - but you get the idea.
