Rim & Fork Recommendation(1 post)

Rim & Fork RecommendationJames M.
Aug 20, 2001 9:03 PM
I know nothing about road bikes (I have built many MTB's in the last 12 years)and I need some recommendations. I found an aluminum Specialized frame (older hybrid frame) in really great condition for $100.00 but it takes 700C wheels. Considering I want a bike for road riding and that I have just about all the parts (mixture of road and MTB) to build it up I think it is a pretty good deal. I already have a set of 32hole hubs so I just need some rims. They must be strong (to support my Clydsdale weight) and except a 30-40 mm tire. I will also need a 1 1/8" rigid threadless steel fork. I am also interested in a finding a good online source for these items. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
