Clueless newbie needs help.
So, I really don't know much about the mechanics of bikes, I just ride them. However, my precious bicycle was vandalized this week! (I just moved into the ghetto, what a welcome.)
This was my bicycle... http://www.raleighusa.com/items.asp?...77&childid=433
Actually, the bicycle itself is just fine. I had it all locked up, but they got my wheels! I figured they would be fine since they weren't quick-release. Everything else on the bike looks okay, I had it hauled upstairs into my apartment.
SO here's my question, I know that I can't just buy a generic 'bicycle wheel'. I'm going to check the pawn shops for mine first, but if that doesn't turn out, I don't know what to get. I've been googling all morning with no success. Can someone link me up or at least give me the specs I need to replace these wheels? PS, i'm very tight on money. So, I can't go spending $200 on a rim or something.
Thanks so much! If any more info about the bike is needed I can supply.
Oh one other thing.. the bike is 7 speeds, and the rear wheel had a bunch of gears on it. So I guess I need to know how to get a wheel with 7 gears on it. *sigh*
