I also have 11/12 butted in straight pull, secret stash for rebuilding Derbi moped wheels.

I think the crown uses 45* pull or something a bit wacky.

Yes the Crown is neither straight pull or 90deg J-bend which is a PITA.

Crazy for a company with such a long tradition of selling hubmotors with terrible spokes to lock you in to a shape where replacements are uncommon/unavailable in the bicycle world.

Hi, did you ever solve the 24 inch TC spoke dilemma?
