Happy Groundhog's Day.

I've just added the 'builder's' wheel to the Parts for Sale page. For home builders who are discouraged by the quality of Junior's borrowed BMX wheel (he's ridden it off a cliff, I think), and farther dismayed by the cost of 'recumbent' front wheels at respectable dealers, this compromise - a quality single wall alloy rim married to a quick release hub, sometimes a salvaged hub, at a price of $40! I've gotten into wheel building, and these are made using a factory wheel built with this rim and then performing a hub-ectomy, where the original and chunky steel hub is swapped out for a nicer one - hand built in this shop! Go buy a hand built wheel anywhere for less!
