Recumbent: the wheels

Apart from the frame, I need wheels of course. A 26" one in the rear and a smaller one of 20" in front. So far, I not only didn't invent the wheel ;-) I neither created one. But where to start?


Well the people of Mossink were so kind to teach me. So I went a complete afternoon to their bikeshop where Mark taught me how to make a  bicycle wheel. After connecting the rim to the hub with 32 spokes (cross 3), we had to true the wheel. Good tooling, some patience and an experienced teacher resulted in a nice wheel! I'm proud of it.


Keep on cycling!
