I was thinking it may be one of those 3 spoke plastic wheels?

Limitations in technology only allowed me to make a four Spock wheel.



OP will have to go custom if he wants a 3 Spock wheel.

Definitely have to avoid the Tribbless tires on those. I’m sure you’ve heard of all the troubles with Tribbles…

Wait, there's regular Spock, and there's the one with the goatee, from the other universe, but where's the third Spock?

Edit: Just realized that the third Spock must be from the Kelvin timeline.

1. Good Spock
2. Evil Spock with goatee
3. Dr Spock the child development expert

That seems highly illogical.

Thank you in advance
Unless you're spending lots of money you won't get anything reliable. If you need to replace your wheels go with a traditional spoke wheelset. Even at the higher levels of a couple thousand for a 3 spoke style wheel they weight more than a lot of decent mid-range spoked wheel while the cheap ones can have one wheel weigh as much as a single traditional wheel and it will not be reliable. There's a reason that spoke wheels predominate the way they do, simple and reliable.

The weight of the pair for 26" is 7 pounds. Maybe it's good for $125, but its cast magnesium. Any standards that make sure the wheel won't fracture? It could be bad news.

oh, I wouldn’t ride those wheels or recommend them. I was just amazed I was able to search the words in the OP and actually find what they were looking for.

There’s also the mirror image Spock from Spock Must Die. That could be the fourth?

Are the 3 Spock 26" available for 7 speed ?
I am contemplating a vintage mountain bike conversion to road.
And want it to be uniquely Spocked.

Take me to Wallymart, bicycle component supplier to the world.
Too bad they withdrew from parts of the PNW.

Sorry, usually on BF I think there is somebody who may go out and buy those.

And I agree! Plus the lookup corrected the spelling errors - "Spock" / "Spoke"
