The 43mm Tec 9 rims, AFAIK, have a machined braking surface.How are you planning on stopping?
There are a million or so combinations out there. Hub flange diameters differ, flange spacing from center varies, etc. Plus, track hubs are usually 120mm width and road hubs are 130mm width for the rear.thanks guys , I'm new at this so I didn't know, all hubs have the same width, where the spokes attach. it's the axle that varies. right?
While I am not intimately familiar with every rim out there, (and Tec9 rims are so crappy, you'll have a hard time finding a website that takes ownership of them, hence the lack of information) I'm sure that the mention of a 43mm "fixed gear" rim implies a lack of brakes to many people. In that context, my question was quite valid. And it's generally not advisable to use the painted, anodized, or powder coated, non-machined and non-parallel surface of a deep v wheel for braking. His are machined, so other than that nasty seam, his brakes should work. Sadly, the weight of the wheel will work against him for both accelerating and decelerating.Although one of them seems unwilling to explain himself in a way that a neophyte can understand, maybe he will make himself clear.
"How are you planning on stopping?"
Is this a riddle, Socrates? deleon has made clear that he isn't knowledgeable about bikes. Do you want to help him or just ask him confusing questions?
Just curious, what do you like about the wheels, and what bike do you have them on?yes the rims are machined for brakes. I curently use brakes front and back with them, and as far as the spokes, I kinda figured i wasn't going to be able to reuse them. I really like the wheels although haven't tried too many to compare, I like them. another question would be do spokes for a 700c rim come in different lenghts?
