    Wheels - Help...

    Hey. As you might already know I am a complete newbie when it comes to all this technical stuff. My bike has a set of Vuelta Airline 1 XRP Plus rims with 24 bladed spokes (2 of which are yellow ) and the rest are black.

    My front wheel is slightly buckled and eventually it will go, but my bike just wont look good anymore without the same wheel on the front as is on the back... So, in looking into buying another rim I went to Vuelta USA's website, but the Airline 1 is just a rim, no spokes... So how do I get another one of these rims. Im gonna ask the bike shop about it but I thought I'll give here a bash also.

    Also, any of you mtb guru's know an approx price for this wheel?

    Cheers,
    Andy

    If you buy the rim a wheelsmith can lace it to the hub of your choice.

    About $200 for the wheelset on the Airline model. May I suggest Sun RhinoLite's for way less $$$

    If I went for the Sun RhinoLites then I would miss the 'uniqueness' of the wheel - I just couldnt see the bike with 32 spokes on it By the way, the pic is pretty much the exact wheel except white replaced with yellow - so thats a reference point - altho my questions already been answered lol

    Thanks for the speedy reply once again - I love this forum
