Correction to previous offset hub story:
The reason for this is that the sharper bend 90° shorter spoke goes on the outside of the hub with its head, which is marked with a bisected triangle, always facing into the hub. It leans over more into the wheel and hence the need for a sharper angle.
The longer spoke with a less acute angle goes inside the hub with its empty triangle head symbol facing outwards, ie all visible spoke heads should be the same symbol.
The hub is always centered with relation to the rim to maintain correct balance and symmetry.
That's a pro feature!
