Different types of bikes require different types of bike wheels. For a road bike, skinny light-weight wheels are best. For a mountain bike, fat, rugged wheels are the way to go. Start your search by focusing on the type of wheel that suits your particular style of bike and riding.
As we know,without wheels rims, your bike would be of no use. Wheel rims are designed not only to fit a tire on so your bike can roll down the road, but to withstand acceleration, braking and sudden turns while adding style and personality to the bicycle wheels on the road.
When building mountain bike wheels, many factors need to be taken into consideration to build a stiff, durable wheel. Arguably the most important of these factors is spoke length and lacing pattern.
Bicycle rims and wheels are available in various sizes, colors and styles. The most common types of wheels available today are wire-spoke wheels, pressed steel wheels and light-alloy casting wheels.
