And I canít just move the whole pattern over one hole, because the spoke holes are slightly angled towards the hub flanges.

This probably isnít a big deal, right? Anybody else notice this issue with A23 rims?

Edit: Never mind. I, feeling assured of my ability to lace, completely skipped over Sheldonís details about the orientation of the second group of spokes. Crap.
i very often do that when i lace. It doesnt bother me at all. My son has a23s in 700c on a bianchi. Light and strong!
