Helium Wheel replacement(5 posts)

Helium Wheel replacementAlan
Mar 20, 2001 7:10 AM
I have a Helium rear, cannot find a new or used front...want to keep the wheel....I am led to believe that wheels "match"...they help the bike maintain certain handling characteristics....What wheel would be compatable to the Helium (and also RED !)? Thanks, Alan

Look in the clasified section of road bike review. I've seen some there. Don't know if they were individual wheels or not. Might ask the person selling them how much he weighs and how s/he rides. Wear and tear on the wheel??
check out Excelpmf

All wheels are compatible, no worry there. But you want a red wheel which is understandable. Excel sells red Ritchie wheels and a housebrand they advertise as similar weight to a helium, but less expensive.
