    Aloha All,
    I put together a 2004 Yeti DH-9 with a GEBE Tanaka 40cc.
    Because my bike comes with a propriatry rear hub ( a 20mm thru axle design).
    I wanted a wheel-smith to lace together a hub I have to a 21x1.6 Excel minibike rim using 10 gauge spokes. This is so I can use the 21x2.75 tire from a dirt-bike.
    Can people list down excellent wheel-smiths and some way I can contact them.
    I shot "The Wheelmaster" several e-mails over the last 2 months, but got no response.
    Thanks

    They've made 12-gauge wheels for me.

    They've also done pedicab wheels with 11-gauge spokes.

    YAY!!!!! The WheelMaster heard my calls, and sent me an email. I sent him a dirtbike 21x1.6 excel front rim and a swiss made edco. downhill mountainbike hub. Wheelmaster drilled out the hubs and fitted stainless 8 guage spokes.
