Tandem Rim for rear wheel.
Having problems with a Velocity Aeroheat rear rim, aluminium cracking on side wall.
Need a rim 26 inch 40 hole. Any recommendations,
Hi Stephen I had a similar problem with a pair of Velocity Chukker rims. I contacted Velocity in the USA directly and they replaced both rims for free, the rear was 3 years old when it failed and the front lasted a bit longer and was about 4 years old when it failed.
I now have NoBS rims but these do not seem to come in 40 hole. Their recomendation for a tandem is either Dyad, Chukker or Atlas which all come in 40 hole.
I've used the Ryde/Rigida Sputnik rims on rears of tandems and triplets without problems. Compared with the latest high-fashion rims, they're boringly square looking, but work well. A quick Google trawl shows them hard to find in 40 hole though. This unknown to me shop lists them
Hello, thankyou all for your assistance so far.
Unable to source Rigida Ryde Sputnick 26 40 hole rim through Practicalcycles.com, SJS Cycles have a brand Koga KM19 rim 40 hole 26 inch, does anyone know how relaible is this brand, also where manufactured.
The only brands available in Australia with 40 hole rim 26 inch is the Velocity Brand, Chukker or Cliffhanger.
Thanks for the imformation supplied in respose to my request for help to source 40 hole 26 inch rims.
Just received Qty 3 40 hole Koga KM19 26 inch rims from SJS cycles, the rims look great and were carefully/professionally packaged for international airfreight.
Intend to replace both front and rear Velocity Aeroheat rims, for safety reasons even though they are less than 12 months old.
