Stock Rims on the EZ Sport CX
I recently had a flat tire on the rear wheel of my EZ Sport CX. While I had the tire and tube off, I was inspecting the rims and they seemed light weight enough, but did not appear to be very durable (in my inexperienced opinion anyway). Also the rear wheel has gotten so out of true after 470 miles, that I had to open the brake pad adjustment at the lever all the way, so the wheel didn't hit the pads.. Balsawings in another thread indicated that if the rims were the same as those on the AX model they should be fine. So I looked up both models on the Sun website and the rims for the AX are described as "Alloy Double Wall Machine Side". The only information on the AX rims is stamped HJC Alloy 606-T6. The Sun website describes the rims for the CX as, "Alloy SL 36H". The information stamped on the rear wheel is the same as the AX wheels, " HJC Alloy 606-T6". However, the front wheel is stamped "HJC Alloy 061-T6". So it seems the rims on the CX are different than on the AX, and are not double walled, but rather Alloy SL 36H, whatever that means.
Does anyone have any knowledge or experience or opinions on the reliability/durability of the stock wheels on the CX as described above. I'd like to eventually do some touring on this bike, but want to be sure these rims are up to the task.
Sealed Hubs used on Sun EZ Sport???
Just curious if anyone knows whether the cartridge bearings used in the sealed hubs on the Sun EZ sport are replaceable, and how many miles they should be good for?
