Aluminum wheels
« on: August 25, 2019, 02:57:59 PM »
Has anyone used a wheel like this one? I have a question for the seller about the weight.

1 1/2# per wheel. Can use an aluminum adapter plate for a disc brake.

I would want to figure out how I could use a larger axle than 3/8" before I bought a pair. If the seller could tell you how large the bearing hole is, you could search for bearings with the same O.D. but a larger axle hole.

Bearing O.D. Is 26mm. Bearings are available up to 14mm x 26mm x8mm that would fit the hole. So, a 14 mm axle is possible.

Thank you. So an axle just over 1/2" is possible. Sounds like a good deal. Do you have a source for the disc brake adapter plate?
