    Forgive me if this the wrong place for this, couldn't seem how to post in the for sale area...... For the Bike HacKerS in all of us.


    Found a bunch of Small Wheels at a local scrap yard today. I'm planing to build a "Forkless Blike" in the future and was looking for the hub off a Wheel Chair to use as a front wheel hub assembly. These wheels look good but lite duty, should work for the front wheel. There selling for $3 each at the yard, and you pay for the trip in the U.S. They are one sided axle with no threads on them, Size is 8 1/2 inches out side diameter. 10 spokes per side, sealed ball bearings with no markings on any part. Was going to use the hub on a 20 inch wheel. I can get the front wheel and the side wheels, I believe these were for a baby stroller of some type, who knows.
    Im in Boise ID 83709 thanks Rich-

    Those are pretty wild. When you said that you were going to build a "forkless bike," I thought you were doing something like a lefty.

    That's pretty sweet I have never seen those before :D

    You could make one where a half of a large hoop shaped piece of metal holds it together from above the bike then the crank emerges from a tube near the back tire and you could roll the entire bike :D

    I have some of those wheels in a larger size - they were from a Yakima trailer/jogger.

    Lefty or righty, single fork idea. Is it to cut the weight of the bike or drag? Who knows, I bet the price of the bike went up several hundred bucks.
