40 holes and totally bombproof. I don't mind the extra weight given that I use my LHT for everything and show it no mercy (jumping on/off curbs fully loaded etc) and the wheels are great.
I'd love to know where to get more in Canada/USA if you find out.
This pair was an old pair sitting in a bike shop before I had them built up.
The only online cycle shops that stock Sputniks appear to be in the UK. I've never had any luck trying to get a UK cycle shop to ship to the USA. Every time I've asked, I was ignored, or flat out told, "no". I find this attitude on the part of UK businesses to be very puzzling. I once ordered BB taps from a tool supplier in Japan. The taps were sent from Osaka, Japan and arrived in New Jersey IN 3 DAYS!
Over 12 thousand miles, and I got my BB taps in 3 days. The UK is only 5 thousand miles from New Jersey. Maybe the UK postal service is now such a shambles, they deliver the mail via donkey cart. They're currently working on breeding a donkey that can swim across the Atlantic.
