1st IGH wheel build for my new Dahon Boardwalk S1...
Love the forum, and 1st time poster, 1st time builder here.
I'm riding in NYC and I'd like to build a 2 speed IGH for my Dahon S1 but I'm not sure about the choice of rim and spoke length.
Here's the parts I've researched... (much to the thanks of Sheldon Brown's incredible pages)
Sturmey-Archer B2C Kick-Shift Hub Kit 36h 116mm Black with Coaster Brake
Sun CR-18 20" 36h Rim Black
Stolen Parts 30mm 20" PVC Rim Strip
Wheelsmith 2.0 x 12mm Black Brass Nipples
Wheelsmith 14g Spokes 2.0x184
Can anyone help me with choosing a rim? (so many brands and profiles)
