Do you feel like it's easier to grab the X laced hub than a regular hub?

Also, that is a really, REALLY good looking chair, well done.
Thanks, and yes, I can fit four fingers in between the spokes when grabbing the hubs. If you don't care about the looks, the x laced wheels are definitely worth it just for that.
