  • Hi does anyone know off an alternative to the somewhat unusual (I guess) combination"HUNT 4 SEASON GRAVEL DISC X-WIDE WHEELSET" i.e.

    12x142 + 12x00, 622, Disc brake, Internal width min 23mm but ideally 25mm?

    And if custom, whats the best site on the www. to use, I'm going to need to have them shipped to Finland?

    Thanks!

  • have found one of the ethirteen rims on CRC that is 28h but can't find the ERD - the closest product I could find was this one which has an ERD of 599. Anyone able to help with the ERD?

    EDIT: Wiggle live chat support confirmed it is 599, no offset - surprisingly quick!

  • Buy them and measure. It might also say on a sticker on the rim (but still measure them yourself to confirm)

  • wanted to buy spokes at the same time if possible, that was my issue!

  • Rarely works out perfectly, rims can vary a little even batch to batch, never mind actually corresponding to manufacturers or retailers published numbers.

    Kinlin TL25R, Bitex hubs, spokes to choice. I believe the Hunt wheels are indeed TL25R rims, Bitex hubs and Pillar spokes.

  • where do you all buy your spokes?

  • Cyclebasket - for standard lengths, stainless butted spokes

  • I want to swap some Sputnik rims into a sora wheelset (both brand new) - is this worth me attempting and then getting a shop to true and tension - or should I just pay a person. ? For both options - anyone know anyone in NW london ? Jubilee line corridor

  • I don't want wheels but I do know someone who has some funding for a few Dr Bikes and similar around Birmingham and is looking for mechanics, they're currently sorting out details but DM me if you or mechanically minded Brummie friends are interested.

  • That sounds like a great opportunity. Dming you now !

  • for the purposes of calculating ideal spoke tension in e.g. park tools wheel tension app...butted spokes that are 2mm - 1.8mm - 2mm...would you say these are 2mm or 1.8mm thick?

  • thanks 👍

    If I were working that shop, I would charge you the same for lacing and finish or fixing what you laced, tbh. The chances of customers getting something wrong are high.
