Sun 700C CR-18 Rims on Sealed Hubs QR Wheelset Freewheel

Quando sealed cartridge bearing Quick Release hubs, for traditional thread-on Freewheels.
36 DT 2.0 mm (14 g) Stainless Spokes.

622mm (700C) Sun CR-18 rims. Strong, general purpose rim. Drilled for presta valve tube.

These wheelsets are excellent for upgrading older road bikes if you want to stick with the old-style freewheel. Rear hub spacing is 126 mm, will usually fit OK in 120 frames too.

Note:These are quite good for being stock wheelsets with straight gauge spokes, and they will give good service for most riders/applications.

Heavier riders and those carrying heavy loads, for instance touring cyclists, are likely to find they need higher quality custom-built wheels.


126 mm spacing, takes standard 5-, 6- or 7-speed freewheels.

Comments:

Bought a set of these in 36 spoke count four years ago to replace the 27" wheels on an old Schwinn Voyager 11.8. In the second year of use spokes stated breaking on the rear wheel for no apparent reason, I wasn't being hard on the bike and I'm only 180 lbs with no additional load so what the hey? After the third replaced spoke I decided to learn about wheel building (it's well worth knowing if you ride a lot) and came to find out that two of the spokes on the rear wheel were crossed incorrectly. Fixed the problem and have had no trouble since. I would definitely consider buying another set of these but would probably pay to have the wheel truing checked. Very good set of wheels for general use, wonderfully smooth too.

Comments:

I wanted to convert my heavy 70's Peugeot UO8 to something lighter and more nimble. Due to sentimental value, cost was not a big issue. Other components had been upgraded previously - - wheels were the last item to be replaced. The old 27" rims and 1 1/4" balloon tires were replaced with these attractive wheels and 25mm Continental Gators. I could not be more pleased with the performance or the appearance.
