I’m building a wheel and need some help.
I’m a big guy pushin’ 225 lbs. and ride mostly off road and long trail rides. My current wheel is a 26" single wall rim, Suzue hub, Yuni frame, Odessey pedals, 170mm Lasco cranks, and a KH saddle.
The rim is warped, missing a spoke, hub flanges are buckled, axle is bent, and frame is twisted. I crash allot!
Doing some research, I learned the Qu-Ax hub CroMo 10 spline hub is a durable heavy duty hub. So I ordered one from unicycle.com.
I had chosen the Alex DX32 rim to match it, but I learned the hub has 48 holes and the Alex rim is either 32, or 36 hole.
- Is it necessary to thread all 48 holes on a 36 hole rim?
- I heard Sun has a 26" 48 hole rim, but I can’t find it…anyone know where I can purchace one?
If those two are not options, any recommendations on a good solid durable tough hub preferably with a splined axle a 6’ - 225 lbs. Uni-abuser would be interested in? I’ll go with a 24" if I have to, but I like the 26" size better.
