Examine the picture of the bicycle wheel at right. If a circle is perfectly symmetrical and the spokes all pass through the center point, how must their lengths compare?

The spokes are all the same length.

If a wheel is spinning, does the center ever shift in height? How about its horizontal position?
Draw a diagram and think about the wheel's movement to figure out the center's type of motion.
