Non-standard axle 130 26" rear wheel rim

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Non-standard axle 130 26" rear wheel rim

it's a Free wheel, I need a tire rim because the tire rim that was on my bike was bent.

I bought it at a thrift store becuase all the other places were sold out or charging a LOT.

Called 4 bike shops. Most say they can't obtain the rear wheel rim I need.

One store said it would be $135. Not sure he understood what we were looking for.

THe frame might also be part of the problem.


Long story short: where can I buy nonstandard rear wheel rim for this beautiful bike?

I'd like to post pics but since I'm new here, I'm not allowed.

But if you take off the https:// and change the "." from before .com or . whatever to " dot ".

Voilà, it's no longer a URL and you aren't violating anything that will bring the internet police to your door. We can figure out how to make it work again. Don't use the linking tools and if the site you post them to uses a share function then use that URL. Just write it in the plain text of your message.

You don't give us much to go on. There are many different sizes of 26" wheels believe it or not.

Not surprised that bike shops cannot understand what you are looking for if you provided the same information that you did here. Are you looking for a rim, or are you looking for a wheel? You ask about a tire rim and a wheel rim. What does that mean? Tires are separate from rims. A rim is a part of a wheel. Describe the bike that you need to repair, it may be beautiful but nobody else can see it

Guessing the bike is a mountain bike from the 80s?
Find a bike collective/co-op where bikes and parts are donated.

OP's Gallery with out of focus photos = https://www.bikeforums.net/g/user/531998

You are going to have to check the used market for a complete wheel. Take the wheel to the shop in person and ask if it can be repaired. Keep in mind that it may not be worth fixing / replacing.

Also note that this bike is not a road bike. Looks to be a department store mountain bike..

Maybe the OP will get back to us. I've no idea what bike that is. If it had a tire on it, the OP needs to tell us what the ISO/ETRTO is that is on that tire. Not the genre size that tire makers seem to love to print on the. The iso size many times is embossed in the tiniest print on the tire.

With that we'll at least know the BSD of the rim.

Hence, not beautiful in the slightest; it's an artefact of neoliberal capitalist insanity, part of the mindless obscenity of transforming the natural world into landfill as fast as possible: it was designed to be sold rather than used.

Spending money on these abominations is a fool's errand. Donate it to a co-op, where they'l strip the few useful components from it, and buy a used bike from above the Bike-Shaped Object tier.

Learn to look under the paint.
