26" Rim Suggestions

Post by avoleoo » Jun 05 2019 8:01am

Can anyone please suggest a strong 26" 36H 32mm - 35mm rim for an ebike ( MAC Motor ) ? Not expensive, does not have to be the lightest.

Thank you.

You'll find Alex rims as a great balance between price and strength. I use them almost exclusively for ebikes.

Alex DX32 is a good one for those purposes. Seems like they are getting harder to find tho
Get a Cycle Analyst and a Multimeter, you're still a noob if you don't have at least one of each.

I just re-built my original wheel from em3ev using a Rhyno Lite XL, 26", 36 hole. Seems fine but I don't have many miles on it. It is 24mm inner, 29mm outer. Running a Schwalbe Big Apple on it. I have a Mac 10t.

It isn't quite as wide as you are looking for, but may be worth looking at.
