2010 orange Kona padywaggon rear wheel

Postby Rick Chasey » Fri Nov 09, 2012 10:25 am

Since mine got ruined.

Anyone got any ideas how I can get one? My google fu is quite strong and I didn't get very far.

I'm keen to have matching wheels. You may all laugh but I really liked the settup of it.

I could replace it with a standard wheel but it'd look w*nk.

I'm also loath to pay too much. The whole bike cost me £350 so anything too expensive I won't buy.

I'm really gutted about this.

Any one with any advice or help? I feel a bit lost and lonely without a commuter runnaround.

Don't seem to be able to buy just the rear, but the colour is right...

edit - or just £89 you could get a wheelset from v-sprint, there is a code on lfgss (will be black or silver though)

Go to a dealer and they will be able to order you one. However, when I ordered mine from Evans it took about 2 weeks and they got the wrong colour despite me being specific. In the end I sucked it up just to get back on the road.. Eventually the colour difference didn't bother me.

It only cost me £50 though which I was pleased with.

Is the rim damage definitely terminal? Can you not replace the spokes?

About 5 of the hols in the rim where the spoke meets have been ripped open, and the rim is significantly bent.

Realistically the rims is f*cked, the spokes are for sure, and I've had problems with the hub anyway.

Hi all, long time lurker and first post, but us PaddyWagoners (if that is a word) have to stick together!

I have one sitting in my shed, upgraded the wheels last year. The rim is fine but the hub was on the way out, hence the upgrade. Not sure if the hub is serviceable or not. Only issue is I am in Southampton.

So if you don't get any luck elsewhere let me know and I am sure we can sort something out on postage. What would be the best option for posting something that size? You can have the wheel for free, it is only gathering dust.

So have I for the same reason.

I'm in West London which might be a bit easier to get to?

Might be best to check that they haven't changed the dropout spacing - mine's about five years old so could have been measured in cubits or something . . . . .

Well it is only effectively a rim, and an orange one at that. Who apart from a man who wears red trouser is going to be interested in that? :wink:

Given that these hubs sound cr@p, wouldn't it be better to just shell out for some better wheels (HALO Aeroage are brilliant SS commuter wheels with sealed bearings). Ok, they don't do orange, but have loads of other colour options. #FalseEconomy

Would have to agree, I replaced with the Aeroage and they have been great. Stayed true despite some big hits on potholes and still run smooth with very little maintenance. Plus you can get them in purple or fluorescent yellow. So they can clash nicely with everything! I went for the yellow and regularly get comments on them, especially when doing sportives on the SS with them!

Picture of yellow is still on there but not listed below in the options. But I am sure a bit of shopping around will find some.

Cheers guys, going to go for a white halo rim on the back.

Anything I need to know about before I buy? 120mm OK?

Why not go for V-Sprint? You can get a pair for £89 with the lfgss discount code, or for £129 with sealed bearing miche hubs. And they come in a range of tasteless colours!

120mm is no hassl unless you have a very difficult chain line, I bought som 5mm spaces to get me from 120 to 130. My spaces are up for sale on LFGSS as part of my tifosi track rear wheel (in black, bladed spoke, semi deep section) £30.
