    Does anybody know where I can find a b43 yellow rear wheel? I dont care to much about the brand I was thinking Weinmann or Velocity. I have found yellow wheel sets but I only want the back wheel. Thanks!!!

    Weinmann doesnt make the B43, Velocity does.

    Just buy the rim and get one laced. I doubt you are going to find just a custom yellow B43 rear, unless you get it custom made.

    Bell's Bike Shop will sell you one wheel and they always have yellow ones available. Send them a message:

    Thanks! I contacted bells bike shop and they said they could do it but it would have to be a custom made wheel so they would have to do it manually...any idea how much that cost?

    If you ask Bell's, they will tell you. They will do a good job and not rip you off so just order one from them and get ready to ride.

    You were contacting the people who will build your wheel, they told you they would build it, and you ask us how much it will cost? I really want to know: Are you serious?

    Make sure to get a low spoke count on that rim. Like 28. Those rims are so damn deep you don't need anything more than that.
    My friend laced up 36h DA track hubs to H Plus Sons and they're so stiff and heavy. They suck.

    Bell's is legit. They built my wheels exactly how I asked and were extremely courteous. Took a while to ship to me though.

    It wont add 40 pounds, My wheelset only is 25 pounds. And thats front and back 51mm lips (: so the 43 must be probally 24.999 pounds. Duh.

    If you look on velomine, Sometimes he has weird colors of b43 up on solo. A anodized red just went up.

    Why would anyone want those wheels? It's like strapping a boat anchor to your bike.

    as for the price, it's the price of the components, and 22 dollars for the custom build. -10% off all that.
