Your comment makes no sense. Care to explain? FWIW the bike runs, rides, handles(for what it is) and stops great. no complaints at all from me.

In my opinion spokes should work on pull/push while accelerating/braking, not push/bend...

radial spokes don't deliver torque to the rim effectively, as the torque vector is perpendicular to the spokes... that applies to both torque from hub braking and engine acceleration. so that torque is causing the spokes to 'wind up', and they likely will fail a lot sooner than normally spoked wheeels, where the spokes come off the hub flange at near a tangent angle.

put the photos on a website that allows cross linking, like smugmug, picasaweb, etc, then use said site to get the picture a suitable size ("L" or "XL" on smugmug, s640 or s800 on picasaweb, etc), rightclick the picture, copy image url..., then come over here, and use the ipcture button above the edit box and paste that picture URL in... like...
