Jr. in need of helpAdam Steelman
Jul 16, 2001 2:02 PM
As with many jr racers I face a problem. Yesterday I was ran off the road and broke a rear wheel (my only one). Now I can not train and it will take me 3 to 4 week to get the money to buy a new one. If any one can help me out with this problem let me know. I am not asking for a hand out, I am just looking for a place I can get a good cheep wheel to get me back on the road.

thank you,
Adam Steelman

If someone ran you off the road, then they are responsible for it. File a police report.
If you can't identify the driver so that their car insurance would take car of it, then chances are your parent's home owners or renters insurance will cover it.

I can probably set you up with a wheel, but I need to know what freehub set-up you need (Shimano 8/9, Campy8, Campy 9/10?) and clincher or tubular.

Thank you for your help. To answer your question I need 9 speed Shimano with a clincher rim.
