Adrenaline world ( in Burleson, TX) ? I'm trying to match a front wheel to my rear wheel on a restoration project. I have only found a few places that have the identical wheel, including the rim decal. And price is right .

Thanks for your input . KB

That's probably where my LBS bought my replacement rear wheel last year after I tacoed the original. Weinmann Zac 19 double wall rim, cone and loose bearing hub for my bike's basic Shimano MegaRange freewheel, heavier gauge stainless spokes. Good sturdy wheel, appropriate for that comfort hybrid which mostly serves as my errand bike and is often loaded down with up to 50 lbs of stuff on the rear rack. No problems after 10 months and about 1,000 miles.

I may order directly from Adrenaline World to get another Weinmann Zac 19 for the front wheel. The original hub feels gritty so the cones and bearings are probably shot. The original rim was single wall and around $50 for a readymade double wall rim replacement sourced locally seems reasonable.

BTW, if you do get a Weinmann or similar double wall rim, be sure to replace the thin rubber rim strip with cloth tape: Velox, Zefal, Nashbar, no-name, doesn't matter. It'll save an annoying quirk a few months down the road. With the deep nipple holes in the double wall rims the tube will eventually extrude through the nipple holes, including through the thin rubber rim strips, and split in several places. Happened to mine with a new tube after about six months. I noticed several identical places along the tube, corresponding with the nipple hole intervals and weakened spots in the rubber rim strip, where the tube had extruded and had tiny splits in many of those weakened spots. I replaced the rubber rim strip with cloth tape. Checked everything a month later out of curiosity -- deflated the tire, took everything off the rim to inspect it. Seems fine, should hold indefinitely. I'm running heavy duty puncture resistant tires that have never had a puncture flat, just slow leaks from those weakened tubes on the inside section facing the rim.
