    New front wheel

    I have '90 Cannondale SR600 and I have noticed an eyelet popped out from the rim. Looking closer I see that rim is cracking where the eyelet popped out

    Where is a good place to order a new front wheel?

    I weigh 240lbs if that needs to be factored in.

    Thank you

    Wolber GTX? Geez, why would you want to replace one of those. If I were you, and you like th elook, I'd opt for one of these, http://www.neuvationcycling.com/prod...-aero-1662.htm or these http://www.neuvationcycling.com/prod...l-set-1661.htm, ask John if he'll just sell you a front..he used to sell them individually. I put a m28 front on an old Miyata, it screams. Neuvation has very personal customer service, just ask John if they'll help.

    The original rims are Mavik MA40. Is Wobler GTX an equivalent?

    Maybe because the rim is cracked?


    Prowheelbuilder dot com ha s a cool program. You chose the rim, the spokes, the hub and piece it together . They do the build then ship it to you.

    All rims from Mavic, DT, Velocity DeepV & Fusion , to less expensive rims like Kinlin.

    No, disconnect. I thought the Wolber GTX was the original rims on that SR600, and I would not advise getting a NOS replacement. Unless you want to match the rear rim in look, I suggest you upgrade.
