    I've bought several sets of the heavy duty wheels from Bikeworld USA. They're a good value for the money. Chrome isn't great so you need to keep them dry. Creative Engineering makes a nice clamshell adapter for that rear wheel... makes for a clean installation and smooth ride.

    Freewheel Sprocket & HD Axle Kit w/Brake - $49.99

    Solid Sprocket & HD Axle Kit w/Brake - $49.99

    If you have a bike shop near you or know how to lace your own wheels, I have found these to be a great addition. The brake kind of sucks, but the freewheel ability and the trueness of the sprocket along with ease of changine sprockets is great. Just a thought.

    I'm going to be using this wheel on my current build http://www.amazon.com/Weinmann-DH-39-Alloy-Wheel-Coaster/dp/B000C1249C Ya really can't go wrong and I think it's a heavy duty setup (Thanks Bairdco) Jim's Sprocket Adapter fits the hub perfectly and makes the wheel look bulletproof! I'm just waiting on his new and improved Engine Mounts, and I'll be cruisin'!

    Thanks for the link. These heavy duty Weinmanns look like good rims and will be my next set instead of the wheels from bikeworldusa which are made in China. according to the web, Weinmann used to be made in Switzerland and Belguim, but is now USA based. That's enough reason for me to give them a try. Wish they had a front one with a drum brake, but can't have everything I guess.

    The heavy duty wheels from bikeworldusa are either, your choice. Good people to deal with, too.

    Pirate can probably tell you which wheel adapter will work.

    So how's it going with the new wheels? I'm looking to get them for my bike which also has gears so it would need a free wheel.
