Mind you, these are not B or A group riders. In a few weeks, I’ll have to see how the VK2 does against our best. Get the new front wheel on and continue to improve the engine. I’m excited…
I e-mailed Dana, Bent Up Cycles, in a final effort to find a tubular 406 rim–no luck. He does, however, sell the Hed. Jet 406 rim, and has them in stock–order placed.
He’ll build up the wheel, all black, with the following components:
- Hed 406 recumbent rim (wheel pictured below)
- An American Classic Micro 58 hub, with ceramic bearings
- Sapim CX-Ray Spokes
I‘ll probably receive the wheel week after next. The spokes and hub have to be ordered and the wheel built.
