Harder to find a 28 spoke rim in 26, than it is to just buy a complete 36 spoke wheel built, with a coaster brake in 26",
New.. and cost is probably 'a wash'.
my 16" wheel Folding bike has 28 spoke wheels , theyre strong, but low spoke count wheels in big rims are much less strong as space between spokes at the rim is further
thats why Usual is 36 , or 32.
a cheap whole wheel or a more costly Rim + 28 bucks for spokes .
