Default Re: where to buy wheels?!?

stop calling it a bike "shop." a shop is where they actually do work, y'know, machine shop, auto shop,etc...

they're a bike "store." and a pretty lousy one if they won't even sell you a wheel.

most wheels that claim 24 x 1.75 are the same as a 24 x 2.125. just depends on what size tire you want.

if you're gonna buy new ones, you might as well do it right the first time and go for worksman or husky. it'll save you a lot of headaches in the future. they both have heavy duty spokes, worksman's are 11g. (.120) and Husky has 12g. (.105)

your stock wheels are probably 14 or 15gauge. skinny and weak.
