Default Re: where can I get a 26" 3 speed wheel?

Hi toker - In the 60s-70s, lots of bikes had 3 speed axles. You can find them on freecycle, craigslist and tag sales if you want to go cheap as an experiment. I found a matched his n hers and put a rear on the front of the other to make my fwd ebike. The only problem is the steel wheel rim brakes have terrible braking characteristics when wet. Not good for Seattle - jd
