    Just out of curiosity I've searched all over the net and can't seem to find any reasonably priced bicycle rims (26" and 29").

    Do any of you guys know where to get rims for a good price?

    I thought about upgrading my rear wheel but having the same luck as you. Allot of bicycle rims sometimes aren't up to the task of holding up on a motorized bike. Finding good rims for a good price is tough for me to. I was thinking of trying to find a good upgraded 24 rim for my rear wheel because my bike has a 24 in the rear & a 26 in the front because it has a fatter chopper style tire in the rear. 24's are harder to find than most rim sizes.

    I've heard the horror stories of motorized bikes & bent rims so upgrading or replacing rims is almost unavoidable if you wanna go fast. Wish someone made moped wheels specifically for motorized bikes.

    Tough to find in the US though.

    Define "searched all over the net" and "reasonably priced". Amazon UK exists, and they have plenty of bicycle wheels.

    That's an interesting wheel design but probability would look ugly on my bike tho. I had trouble finding someone who sells it.

    Do you take business advertisements as literal as you do simple posts on the internet? If so I'd imagine you're often disappointed.

    As for the Amazon reference, thanks.

    Well, at least we both agree your post was simple.

    You're welcome.

    There are other MB specific wheels on that page as well, like double wall wheels with 12g spokes, sprocket and band brake on it.
    I included the link.

    Staton sells wheels, not sure about the prices. He'll set them up to be plug n play with cassette and all.
