Heavy-duty Tandem Touring/MTB wheel w/ threads for Arai Drum Brake for sale in Catonsville, Maryland


I got this wheel about 4 years back, when I was brand-new to bike touring, and desired a super-strong rear wheel. It originally attracted me on the basis of its 48 spokes and attachment point for an Arai drum brake. I have actually ridden on it for a few hundred miles, however nearly quickly after I purchased it I learned ahout Sturmey Archer X-RDC centers (which have currently integrated drum brakes), which I later on built and bought into my existing rear wheel. Ever since then, this extremely stout, rugged wheel has actually been collecting dust.

This is a 26 inch (559 mm, normal MTB) wheel. It is hand-built (according to the dealership I initially purchased it from) with a massive 48 spokes in exactly what seems 4-cross lacing pattern. Rim is a Sun Rhyno Lite drilled for schrader valves (I installed a grommet to make a snug fit for presta valves.) Hub model is a shimano HF08. You can run it on this center if you occur to have an Arai drum brake! The spokes are 14g, straight-gauge and stainless steel, with brass nipples, althought I do not understand the brand name.

Since it is tandem wheel, the axle is 145 mm, indicating it won't fit onto a lot of non-tandem frames without modification - when I used it, I switched out the axle & re-dished the wheel to make it deal with my non-tandem MTB frame. I have since re-assembled and re-dished the wheel back to the method it originally came.

To perform upkeep on the center bearings, you'll need 15 mm and 17 mm cone wrenches.
