All,

Has anyone got a spare one??

Mine appears to have rotted to point of no return. New to the club so someone shout if I am posting in wrong area.

If not, any advice on compatible wheels or recommended replacement rims appreciated.

Cheers!

Greetings Jon,

Getting a serviceable 'used' wheel may be a bit difficult, especially as you have forgotten to tell us which model - disc or drum - and where you live :lol:

It might be an idea to source a competent well builder and have a new rim fitted to your hub after it has been cleaned and repainted, plus new bearings fitted. It will not loose value and indeed would make the bike more attractive if you decided to sell it in the future, most unlikely as they are great bikes ;)

TTFN

Hugh.

Hugh,

Thanks, it is a hub version and I live in West London area.

I think you are right, the front wheel has already been rebuilt by the previous owner with an SMPro rim so I think I will bite the bullet and do the same on the rear now.

Thanks,
Jonathan

Expect to pay about £180 for alloy rim, stainless spokes and nipples. | used Central Wheel, Coleshill, Birmingham, and got a local man to swap rims which cost £20. It is a waste of time going for a second hand one because the balance of probabilities is that it will be as bad. Ask at your local group for local wheel builder.
