Subject: [CR] Large Flange Hub Flange Question


Does anyone know if the flanges on Large Flange hubs are "bent" inwards to better align the spokes with the rims.

If so, at what angle are the right and left flanges bent. This is a trick question because it depend upon the distance between flanges and, possibly, the side the flange is on in the rear (due to dishing).

Did Campy bend their Large flange hub flanges.

I ask because, in photos of Prior large flange hubs, some bend is visible.
