Hi Motor bicyclers I know from experience that we like to run wheels that have 12g spokes. But the only problem is that its hard to find them for Mountain bikes. Well it was hard for me to find them. Any ways I did find some that where pretty cheap (around $50 with expedited shipping) and so far run great. This wheel is a freewheel style so you do need to get your own freewheel gear set which i found on the wal- mart website (it has a LOT more than you would think) for about $15 dollars (before shipping and taxes(i live in CA)). Anyways here it ishttp://www.walmart.com/ip/Sta-Tru-26x2.125-Rear-12G-Fw-Steel-36H-Wheel/32312653 Well I did my part and shared what i found have fun out there and be safe this is G3R0N1M0 signing off have a great night/morning/day!
