    I havent used them. Can you get a disk brake rear. The mount would make a sprocket mount easy. Andy does one to match i believe. --------->

    A good rear wheel with disc mount is high on my list. Im sure it's got to be better than squeezing a sprocket on the spokes.

    I was talking to a mate today and his a bicycle machanic. He said the reason because of the buckeling rim is when you pedal u are moving the hub and it takes a little bit of time to move the spokes.
    So the spokes are bending. He said this isnt to bad when just normal peldaling but when you have the power of a motor it just magnafys it.
    Just thought id share that.

    Those are very cheap $80 for a set of wheels is very inexpensive. Don't know about shipping though.
    I see 1 main issue w/ those wheels. It matters entirely what they are made out of. They are not easilly repairable, probably will stay true laterally, but potholes are death radially.
    They sure do look cool!

    Shipping is another 80 on top of that. I looked at these buy i think i'm just opting for the wheelmasters 12 guage spokes wheels. 26 by 2.125. 5/6 speed freewheel. Hopefully it'l work with my old mountain bike. I love the look of these rims. BMX riders say this material breaks under jumps. But we're not exactly doing jumps, but potholes did worry me. So i'm sticking with the conventional 36 spoke just beefing it up a little.
