Rim "half hub" 18 inch

Which bikes have a "half hub" 18 inch rim?

With 36 spokes.

Wide 2.50 or else.

Want to change from a 17 to a 18 one.

half hub.... like BSA and Triump?

actually.... all you want to do is put on a different rim.... you can put it on the existing hub with different spokes. dunno who does that kind of work on your side of the pond, over here Buchanan is a top contender.

I do not know well de bsa and triumph.
Searching on the internet i read this too, but how about spoke lenght.

Our hub have spoke length of 157 mm on the left and on the right 172mm that is 15 mm difference. 17 inch rim.
I thought this needed a half hub rim.

Keeping the original hub only the rim of a other bike.
Now there is a 17 inch on, selectivity of tires is poor.

18 inch, than the bike do not fall in every little hole. Allroad, DS, Offroad use.
That why asking for a rim off another bike.

The question is also now with this spoke length is it a half hub, the original one?

Buchanan:
Service Unavailable


perhaps only in my country, ip adress selectiv

Hello Myway,
you didn't mention which bike you're talking about. With dual-sporting on your mind it might be better to switch to a 19 inch wheel. Your choice of tyres would be even bigger. There's a lot of wheel-building companies in England and Germany, so this will be much easier for you discussing your needs and wishes and to cut the costs of getting your wheel there and back again (term used especially for hobbit-fans like my wife and me myself).
If wanted, I could take a look around for some addresses in Germany, and in England, too. I'm working on a conversion of the rear-wheel of one of our Suzuki GN 400s to get stickier tyres for it than the original 16 inch-sized ones. As I have plans of building a flat-tracker/(street-)scrambler out of it, I'm thinking about a change from 18 to 19 inch at front, too.
Kind regards, Bambi

Ich habe schon nach halb nabe gesucht.

But the rims i watched is see nothing about the drilling angle.
A halfhub rim could have all size of drilling angles according to the used hub (spoke lenghts).

But18 inch is one step, riding DS, i must see if it fits when i need the total wheeltravel not hiting the filterbox.

A rim with drilled holes in the right angle i am looking for.

I was looking at a husky TE 610 takasago rims.

Brand name of takasago is Excel rims.

So i have a takasago rim now, only not excel sticker on it. 17 inch


This are the standard spokes:
18 mal
41029-1214KawasakiSPOKE-INNER,RR,157MMX165D
18 mal
41029-1215KawasakiSPOKE-INNER,RR,172MMX162D

What is ment by 165D and 162D?
Angle of the spoke at the hub and D type of knot.

Hello,

sorry, I thought you were talking about a front-wheel!

For the rear one, 18 inch is ok, I wouldn't vote for a 19 inch there. I have to admit, that I can't answer the question, if for a conical or halb hub the drilling angle of the rim must be different between the two sides.

I could talk to a friend who does wheel-building. He's the one who'll lace my rear-wheel of the bespoken GN with a 17 inch rim from a Suzuki Big. Ok, these are both symmetrical and both have the same diameter. He's done many wheels for Yamaha's XT 500, which has a hub with different diameters left and right, too. So he should know! What he can't do is to take a raw rim and drill it in the right places and angles. But he knows, how this has to be done.

One advice, a friend from our German Suzuki Big-forum once told me: Take a visit to a nearby moto-cross-club. They destroy so many wheels, they know how to repair them ...

Kind regards, Bambi
