Something for bashing around town, so 32 spokes or more and around 17mm wide rim.
If you can be bothered to spring the frame for a 130mm rear, got a pair of fairly decent 105 on DRC ST18 (think that's the outside width, a touring type thing) doing nothing, they're blue rims. 32 or 36 I can't remember which. Yours cheap, collected SE4 or delivered somewhere near / in town. For cassette not freewheel.
Check No 2
Edit: I had a wheel but rim width too big.
Thanks @Skülly, noted. My 80's Dawes Galaxy has become a time pit largely due to the rear wheel, so at this point I would just like something that is plug-and-play. If no other solution emerges, I'll take you up on your kind offer.
How wide is too wide?
Also have these
SHIMANO 105 FH-1051 HUBS 36 holes, 100/126mm including 7sp Uniglide cassette/both QR skewers on unknown (destickered) black anodised rims shod in lots of life left Durano/Durano Plus 25mm tyres if of any interest.
Loads too wide. Basically, I hadn't spotted your 17mm demand and then saw a touring wheel. It's a 700c rim but the width is similar to that of an mtb rim.
@Foreigner65 How rude not to reply to your first post!
I'm trying to avoid postage, but I may well need to.
Hey no worries. Postage is cheap as we can use office USP services for under £5 for any size parcel.
How wide are the rims? I've got 32mm tyres I'd like to run.
Will check later and let you know
Hiya - both silver and black are 14mm internal/ 20mm external , so IMO 28mm tyres are top size, not to say people are riding bigger ones without problems. The silver ones - rear BTW is called OMICRON (😨😨) - came with new 28 city tyres which you can have FOC with the wheelset.
Up to you really, understand you may want 32s on your Galaxy.
Just so you could maybe consider something narrower to open up your options.
I'd been running 32s on the rear of my commuter and tourer/audax machines since 2010 and 2017 respectively. The commuter with an Open 4 ceramic (which are some of the narrowest rims at barely 12mm) and older Open Pro CD on the tourer. I went up to 107kg (now at a svelte 95kg) and still no squirm even under hard turns and loads on top of my heft.
I know some will absolutely reject this but my real world experience of doing this over long periods/tens of thousands of miles I've had zero issues.
