    18 hole 26" wheel?

    I picked up a NOS DeoreXT front hub, 18 holes for $10 from a local shop...sweet deal right?

    But now I may be panicing...I can't find any 18 hole 26" rims online...not even ebay.

    Any ideas anyone?

    Get a 36 hole rim and use half the holes

    No worries. It's up to you to lace it six-cross, though.

    I believe you have just pulled an April Fool's on yourself.
