Long time non-contributor, first time hopefully-going-to-contribute-er here with a front wheel issue:
I've been in the market for a 21" front wheel for my 07 Speedmaster for quite some time now. Last night I was doing my usual browse through ebay and found this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/290801589149...84.m1423.l2649
just about to end. I raced around to do research to see if it'd work, but couldn't find much, so in a panic I bought it anyway. It's much cheaper than any other option, and if I end up losing a few bucks on it, I'll be bummed but not broken. The question is....will it work? If no, why? and is there anything that can be done to make it work?
I just counted 40-spokes as well, which makes me feel like a total bone-head. I assumed, all along, that it was a stock BA hub laced to an aftermarket rim.
The hub has a flange for a disc brake. Does it at least look similar to ours?
What are the odds that, even though the hub isn't a stock hub, with a little work it could be made to fit?
In the auction it says that the included axle is 13" long, and 19mm in diameter.
Just a heads up, this is also posted over at bonnevilleamerica. Just looking for a range of solutions. Thanks everyone.
