    Bontrager Valiant - OSB Issue

    I understand this OSB thing to be only for the rear wheel. Is that correct? Although my Heckler is fittet with the OBS both at the front and at the rear. More strangly (I think) is that the angle of the OBS is on different sides, meaning:
    The front wheel has got the angle side towrdas the breake rotor. The rear has got the angle side opposite from the front and on the cassette side. Is this how its suppose to be?
    Is this wheelset ok for my 215 lb?
    Thanks in advance

    It's normal, because of the space taken by the front disc on the left, the OSB rim actually makes the angle of the spokes more equal both sides. Same thing in the rear, except that it's the cogs that take more space so the rim is on the other side.
