Re: Ultimate wheel question

Hi Dana,

the German manufacturer I mentioned in my previous mail (Pichler) is the only
one I know, that builds ultimate wheels with few but thick spokes (instead of a
solid disk). I think there are some other manufacturers of ultimate wheels.

If you want to build one yourself I would use 24’’. But I can ensure you: it
will be banging into your legs a lot of times (especially when learning to
ride), no matter what wheel size you use. The only way to avoid pains is to
protect your shins and ankles. Some weeks ago, there was an article on the
mailing list how to build an ultimate wheel. I don’t remember who wrote it, but
you should find it at the archive files.

Regards, Wolfgang
