24 Spoke 16" (Brompton) Rim needed
Anyone know where I can find a 24 spoke 16" rim for a Brompton nowadays.
Mail order is best.
Brompton uses 28 spoke rims,(+hubs) [bike Friday Tikit uses 24 spoke rims & hubs ]..
Though my older Mk2 Brompton had a steel hubshell , 20 spoke. front ..
SJS in London, UK would ship to Israel .. [ Bike friday in Eugene Oregon, USA, Also does world wide shipping]
Brompton's new double wall rim is different front and rear , older single wall rim is only differing in the spoke sizes used.

They're all 28 hole, but if you want a different number of holes, scroll down to the bottom of the page and see other suggested rims.
QRIM-28-AGL is their new rear specific rim , angle drilled for the heavy rear spokes (nice touch)
QRIM-28-STD. is not so angle drilled .
the older single wall rims were not differentiated ..
