New to posting, taking a chance on double posting, but I'm interested to see if replies from the Alt Bike Community are in sync with replies from the Mechanics Community!
Why no Custom Wheels for Bicycles?
Excuse the nube, non-engineer question,, I’ve been riding to work for a couple of years now, and I’ve been wondering why there are no “Custom Rims or Wheels” for Bicycles. Spokes and Carbon Is all I see. Cars, trucks & motorcycles have hundreds of choices. Is it a weight issue, a strength issue? Steel I know is heavy and does not stop well when wet, but what about aluminum or plastics?
Thanks for feedback.
PS.. Yes, I'm talking about Mag wheels for bicycles, like on cars and custom Motorcycles!
