Rear wheel wanted

Chris Allen2023-08-05 17:59:55

Our Orbit rear wheel was recently damaged courtesy of Wiltshire CC roads dept. Our local bike shop straightened it as best they could but the rim still has a very small "S" shaped kink in it (picture).

TBH I don't really want to purchase new from JD as the price is almost as much as I paid for the bike!

I'd really appreciate if anyone has a 40 - 48  spoke 700c (622X18) rear wheel (disk brake fitting) going spare. Of course I'm happy to pay.

Despite numerous attempts (as a png, jpg and jpeg) I don't seem to be able to load the picture of the current wheel. Its a Alexrim DH19 622X18.

Hi Chris

I have a 700c rear wheel surplus to requirements. Campag large flange hub, smooth sealed bearings, quick release, strong alloy rim (I think it's 48 hole, but might be 40). Only problem, its for a rim brake, not disc as requested.

Would a rim of any use, O have done it s few times, tape new rim to existing wobbly rim and transfer spokes over one by one.  Need a rim with same ERD and of course so we I need to know if 40 or 48 drilling.  I have 700c rims on both drillins I am taking to TCN2023 at Stratford-upon-Avon tomorrow, hoping to rehome them.  Let us know what ERD rim and drilling you need.

Hi Mike, your wheel might well be OK as it should be possible to retrofit it my disk brake. Any chance of a picture? If it OK with you, can we pick up the conversation by email? My email is chris.allen@clientfocus.com.

Many thanks

Hi Mark. That sounds like a definite possibility, if Mike's wheel proves to be unsuitable. Currently it's got 48 holes but I haven't measured the ERD. I'll be in touch if I can't use mike's wheel.

Many thanks for the offer!

Warland cycles in Oxford has 48hole DH19 Rims for sale https://www.warlands-cycles.co.uk/catalogue/tandems/synergy-tandem-rims

Could you replace the rim in the existing wheel ?

Hi Neil

Thanks for the Warlands recommendation! I collected a rim from them today and am now in the process of threading it. Fingers crossed!
