Wheels/tyres wanted - can you help?

Post by UrbanFox » Sun Feb 08, 2015 3:34 pm


The car that my team and I currently have is one that we built ourselves and it is not sufficiently competitive so we are taking steps to make it lighter. One thing we are keen to do is to replace the current BMX wheels and rather thick tyres with much thinner racing ones.

Does anyone have any spare wheels/tyres they would be willing to sell? (We would need at least four of course!)

If you can help please PM me or send an e-mail to bfpcr@derekmorgan.info

Many thanks!

I am afraid we build our wheels up on our own hubs but I get rims from our local bike shop: Thornton's Cycle Centre in Rugby.

We use 36 hole 406x20C rims and Schwalbe Durano tyres (20x1.1" size) although 18x1&3/8" tubes seem to fit these best!
