fairly sure if I rode a bike like that (thin-wall tubing) it would just snap : )

the wheel I just built might also break upon use -- it's a beefy rim and a ton of spokes, so hopefully not. But I haven't made a cassette wheel before, only symmetrical ones (front or single-speed)

Because cassette hubs are asymmetrical to accomodate the cassette, they have uneven tension between the drive side and non drive side, and of course they're subjected to much more force than front wheels.
