    New Wheel(s)

    Well for christmas i am thinking about getting a wheel set or rear wheel.
    I'm not sure yet.
    I hate my backwheel the hub is all messed up and i hate 22/8. My chain smacks so much and my sprocket is bent. I have a crappy rhynolite laced with a crappy joytech hub with a 8t driver my friend gave me and a 22 animal sprocket.
    what wheel set or rear wheel.

    how much can you spend?

    i run a primo mix cassette (9t), with odyssey haz lite rim, primo 14g forged spokes. i like the wheel very much, but admittedly i haven't tried a whole lotta other hub/rim combos. this was a mid-level setup in cost (made better by dans 20% off coupon).
    ive heard good things about shadow rant v2 hubs, wtp supremes...but those were a little more exp than the primo. rim wise, odyssey are highly regarded...and i've heard that hoffman generators are nice too (and relatively inexp).

    "Crappy" and "Rhynolite" don't belong in the same sentence. True your wheel.

    No. It's not a nice rhynolite, they are trued.
    It's not my rim. It is my hub.
    I think i can get any wheel maybe, if it's not to much.
    This is what i'm thinking right now.
    7KA to Mix
    or 7KA to Profile SS Cassete
    I'm not sure which one. I always use the 20% code it's so nice, if i get a new wheelset i'm getting like $100 off.

    For a 7KA to Profile SS Cassete and primo spokes it is $300 shipped exactly with a 20% code, also with a profile imperial 25t. Is profile imperial sprockets good?

    For a 7KA to Primo mix with primo spokes it is $235 shipped also with a imperial sprocket.

    What do you think?

    Yeah rhynolites are not crappy rims, and the hub isnt even that bad either. Bike parts need to maintained you know. probably just needs to be taken apart and cleaned/ greased rebuilt. Spend your money on parts that need to be replaced... And a sprocket is a sprocket pick the design you like best.

    Yeah, Rhynolites are actually good rims. That's why I'm getting them when I get my new wheelset. And I know Profile's are great for racing but I'm not sure about for street/trails/park.

    I'm not saying anything, im just making a suggestion, how was i to know that you've already taken the hub apart and checked it for yourself? Make sure you do, but shops will tell you things so they can make money. The profile hub is solid, go with that it you like the hub. It's pretty hard to find a hub that is garbage now a days. Everything is just clones or each other with different logos.

    Sorry Fuzzy, i think i have been getting you and fuzzbox confused or something.
    It wasn't a shop it was a local rider who is really chill.
    Yeah i think i may go with a profile. What do you think about the combo with 3/8th in the back?

    lol, 3/8 in the back. Make 100% sure you get 14mm in the back.

    If you have a 14mm rear, why would you get a 3/8th one?
