I have a Pashley Princess Sovereign bike. The rear wheel was damaged when the panniers intersected the spokes. The shop quoted a high price (more for the rim than the labour to build the wheel). I bought one of these 1 3/8 rims which turned out to be a bad idea because now the inner tube can't be pumped up fully without the tyre beed popping out of the rim. Would a different tire be better suited to this rim, allowing me to pump it up fully?
Incidentally, the "chrome plating" that the eBay listing claims hasn't stopped it from turning into a rusted mess.
