It's what happens when you've been working/associating with your local bike shops.. for decades... wherever you live.. will work for parts..

Question Why can't I find these?

Howdy all,

I know, this is a photo thread, but...

So I had my bike on the back of my car and got rear ended. The frame looks straight, but the wheels are toast. The problem is I'm having trouble finding a disc-brake compatible road wheelset. The bike is a Specialized Tricross. Need a 700c, 16-18mm internal width, and the rear needs to work with a 10sp Shimano cassette. I've found an Easton EA90 set at Jenson, but it's almost $900 for the set. I know, you get what you pay for...

Yes, I've tried directly from Specialized, but no luck. The LBS was also no help, strangely enough.

Any help, suggestions, or donations, greatly accepted!

edit: Rats, just realized the aforementioned EA90 only works with a 9-speed cassette.

Gillmartin screwed with this post 07-30-2013 at 05:31 PM Reason: No reason, I just like doin' things like that...

Well, I couldn't help myself.



An as new Burley duet Tandem for $500. Tomorrow I will begin the process of modding it. It will get platform pedals front and back. Laurie likes cruiser ergos, so I'll bolt on some cruiser bars and a big goofy looking cruiser seat. The front compartment will remain unchanged initially, though I suspect I'll want a different seat. The tires are dry rotted so I'll slip on some 700x32 Bontrager hard case tires that are in the attic. The bike appears barely used. There are still rubber nipples down the center tread of the original tires. The front derailleur needs to be adjusted. After that, it should be good to go.

Sounds like the stoker won't be doing much stoking.

Nope. Just an inexpensive and different way of having fun and getting in a little exercise. We rented a cruiser tandem in the Keys and had a blast. These bikes retailed for about $1800 ten years ago. It was a steal!

The cheapest way is to get new rims, and take your bent wheels to the wheel builder and let him switch out your broken parts. I am not sure what the pricing for building wheels is at you region, but it is somewhere between 10 and 50 $ per wheel, a lot cheaper and the quality is much higher than a factory built wheel ;-)

#1) the other drivers insurance should pay for any damage, have the frame checked for aglinment by a bike shop. There may be other damage you did not see right away like bent cranks or chainrings.

#2) 8,9 and 10 speed cassettes all fit on the same free hub bodys.

#3) I am a fan of Stan's wheels: http://www.notubes.com/Alpha-340-Dis...-P1068C58.aspx They are relatively light and inexpensive.

#4) If you just want to rebuild, I would buy a Stan's 29" Crest rim and rebuild with that, it will be a little wider than stock but it will work just fine. Or the iron cross rims, they are 1mm narrower.
