... sorry :) i have some old nos NISI rims with the medallion instead of the the decal. i always thought the extra mass of the medal offset the ball's of the rider who used them, as oppsossed to the rotating mass of the wheel which is perpndidcular, which went in the other direction. what do i
know !
