Hello my step dad has this yellow bike which he bought from a racer on the local Louisville race track. its a cruiser and it says FA all over the fork/frame. I need a new wheel because the original is screwed up.It weight 26 Lb Is it a good bike?
If there is nothing wrong with the hub just take it to a bike shop and have them lace up a new rim for you. An Alex DM-24 24" inch rim is only about $20.00 at the shops around here and it is usually another 20 or so to have it laced up if you don't know how to do it yourself.
Any more suggestions on a cheap but not too bad rear 24In rim?
Well i just went to my local bike shop and they said $50 !!!!!!!!!!!!
So i think i am not going to be able to get a new wheel for a while, but if i could do it my self it would be really good. But sadly i cannot. I would be fine with $20 but not with $50!
Well because i am 14 i cant really make a lot of money. So do you think i should learn and do it my self? Or is it safe to ride it ,because it has a small crack on the braking surface bit its only minimal.
If i would have a job then i would be fine but i don't have a job.
