    i need a new wheel(set)

    hey guys, i have a trek bruiser 1, and my stock front wheel (26", 32mm) got stolen a month ago.

    so i bought a random front wheel off craigslist, which works, but it looks stupid because the front rim/tire is narrower than the back.

    so, i was thinking of just buying a better front wheel, that is rim brake compatible, that would kinda match with my back wheel a bit better.

    any ideas on a decent build?

    i was also looking at maybe just getting a wheelset.

    that one is rim and disc compatible i believe, and it's only 200.

    what should i do?

    Just go to the LBS and have one built up.
    Be far more durable than any machine built wheel.

    You should get a new wheelset AND a new front fork for your Bruiser. Just so happens I've got some I'm selling.

    Profile Racing Hubs laced to Mavic D321 rims, and your choice of a RS Psylo, Marz Z1 or Marz Shiver.

    I'll make you a deal!!!!
