    where are all the 16" wheels ??

    i am having quite a hard time locating a 16" (305mm) rim in the drilling i need (28h)
    where have they all gone ? i figured low spoke counts would be more common in such a small size wheel as strength is not much of an issue but i found very few options:

    velocity aeroheat (my main choice but US distributor is out of stock)
    alex 16x1.5 (too wide for my application)

    i tried gaerlan and a couple other folder/recumbent specialists/velocity retailers with no luck..

    does any one have any ideas where there might be one lying around in stock ??

    Actually, you should check out a BMX shop, there are a fair amount of high-quality 16" BMX bikes on the market and they would have much nicer wheels than your run-of-the-mill kids bike.
