Wow, those relativistic spokes are mindbender.

So, if there was a clock reading 12 noon at the hub of the wheel, the clock leading the motion would be before 12 noon (spoke bending up, and the clock trailing the motion would be after 12 noon (spoke also bending up). So the spokes would tend to delay and cluster at the top of the wheel and pass quickly around the bottom!!!? Interesting :-)
