Topic - Help! New back wheel

stewieatb on 17 Mar 2014
Hey

Last week I managed to bend the back wheel on my town runabout. Unfortunately as it's a 20+ year old bike, finding a new one is proving a bit tricky. I need:

700c narrow rim (to take 22mm tyre)
Shimano 7-speed freehub body
126mm O.L.D. (Over Locknut Dimension - distance between the rear dropouts).

The last one is the trickiest part, as the standard became 130mm not long after this bike was built.

If anyone has any clues, knows of any vintage bike-bits websites that aren't too pricy, or has one hanging in their garage, please let me know. I've just spent 40 on what I thought was right, but it turned out to be a hybrid wheel with a wide rim and 135mm O.L.D. so it's going back in the morning.
