stupid fixed gear wheel questionDougSloan

Do rear track/fixed hubs have symmetrical dishing (same length spokes on both sides)? If I were to build one, I assume that it would be easier than an asymmetrical freehub wheel, right? (This seems obvious, as a flip/flop hub would have to be -- I think -- but I'm checking to make sure).


Does this mean I am stupid for answering?MB1

Both side spokes are the same.

Sometimes the obvious needs confirmation.
