    Where to find 700c, double wall, presta wheel with 130mm frehub?

    Can't find replacement for Sun CR-18/Shimano Deore frehub wheel on my 1996 steel Trek hybrid with 7 speed cassette. Original spacing 126mm, added spacer to accommodate 130mm.

    Looking for tough, durable wheel to run 32mm tires on NYC commute.

    Where can I find wheel with below criteria?

    Seriously? Any bike shop can order a wheel like that, there are many available. I'm sure you can order one directly. I know for a fact that Bontrager have 8-9 that fit your description.

    For a NYC commute, you want something as bombproof as possible. 130mm is now the standard road size. You won't be able to use a newer Deore hub as that is a mountain bike size of 135mm.

    Prowheelbuilder can customize for any build you want:

    https://www.prowheelbuilder.com/cw/i...hp?step=review

    A good commuter build for you would have as many spokes as possible. 36 spokes front and rear would make a good commuter build. So you could get:

    Rims: DT SWISS TK 540 700C (36 hole)
    Hubs: SHIMANO ULTEGRA HB6800 (36 hole)
    Spokes: DT SWISS COMPETITION 14/15/14
    Lacing pattern: 3 cross or 4 cross
    Nipples: DT SWISS 14G 12MM BRASS

    Total Price: $518.16
    Total Weight: 2,079.36 grams

    Note:

    I entered Ultegra hubs as they aren't much more expensive than 105 hubs. If you want to squeeze the buffalo, you could get 105 hubs.

    They recommend DT Champion spokes which are 14g straight gauge. I put in DT Competition butted 14/15/14 gauge instead. While it may seem counter intuitive, butted spokes are actually stronger. The weakest part of a spoke is at the nipple and the j-bend. By making the spoke thinner in the center, it will flex more here and less at the vulnerable nipple and j-bend ends, thereby extending the life of the spoke. I have honestly never heard of a spoke breaking in the center.

    Brass nipples are a must. Do NOT use alloy nipples for a commuter build.

    Hope this helps.

    Man, if you can't find a cheap hybrid wheel over at www.the-bikeshop.com, then you must be looking for something unobtainable.

    OK, that's a standard rim brake mountain bike hub size.

    So, then, you need a "29'er" wheel....

    But, all you need to make a 130mm spread fit is a .100" thick washer on each side..

    No, he needs a new/old stock hybrid or touring wheel. Just about all "29er" wheels are disc brake wheels.

    I don't normally recommend Mavic. However, the A719 is one of their better efforts. These are paired with Shimano XT hubs:
