    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.

    Here's some Brompton rims at SJS in London that can be ordered online;

    Brompton 16 x 1 3/8 (349) Rim - 28H - 20.75

    Brompton 16 x 1 3/8 (349) Rim - 28H - 19.75

    28h Alesa 16 x 1 3/8 (349) silver alloy rim with w - 16.00

    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.

    Note:
    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 ..
