Hi, Armadillo, thanks for your suggestions.

Do you think itīs better make this 3 spokes solid without a central hole to add strength?

The only purpose of split the bearing spacer itīs saving weight but I think you are right and itīs better make a complete circle instead of a split circle to save machining time.

Iīll change soon the design.

If I make this 3 spokes solid, I can make a deep cut in outside part of hub to save weight, like you see in: Second V3 Design.

Do you think itīs a good idea?
