genius hub

met a very interesting guy today by the name of Mick.
let's just say he's a very experienced cyclist
who also builds frames
and this hub.
second photo doesn't do justice to the dishless-ness of the rear wheel.
top photo shows the hub and extension axle
as well as the unique spoking pattern (radial + 2 over ?).
he made the frame and the hub.
a fascinating experiment in 
how can you make a standard spoked wheel lighter without sacrificing strength?
