Front wheel reversible?
Hey there fellow members,
I bought a set of Conti 4000 road tires. They were a #@$% to install (getting that last part of the bead was tough!). Then I realized they're directional tires and I installed the front one backwards. Instead of removing it, I figure I'd just flip the skewer (well, not needed really) but also flip the sensors for my HRM and cyclocomputer. I checked with an LBS and they asked what type of rims first. I said Bontrager Select (came with my ride years back), probably cheapish compared to what usually comes with mid-range bikes these days). i was informed some wheels are reversable but some aren't. But mine should be OK.
Are the Bontrager's reversable (front)? Are there rims that aren't reversible? I'm thinking, even if someone is rebuilding a rear wheel, reinstalling spokes and all, the rim itself could be reversible, rigth? Can't think of a reason why not as the spoke pattern on most bikes I see dont' seem to be directional, and not like motorcycle wheels where they would be.
