Velocity USA is a company that has been making high quality rims for quite a while now. We've always loved them because they are one of the few companies out there that offer hard to find recumbent rim sizes in multiple styles, weights and hole counts.
A new wheelset can be one of the most noticeable improvements a rider can make to their recumbent. All of Velocity wheelsets are hand-built in Grand Rapids, Michigan and most of their rims are now being made in Jacksonville, Florida. In fact, each person working at Amling's has at least one set of Velocity wheels on a bike--and some of us have quite a few more...
If you have a high racer recumbent most off the shelf road wheelsets are compatible with your bike. However, if you have the less common 650c wheel size or want to treat yourself to some lightweight, hand-built, wheels give the A23 wheels a shot. We've listed a few common wheelset combinations but feel free to call or email if you have any questions or don't see what you need.
These wheelsets are not mass produced so each wheel will be special ordered and custom-built for you. It will be at least a week before a wheelset is shipped out. We will do our best to give you a rough time estimate soon after your order is placed.
Wheels are built with 24 spokes, 0 cross in front and 28 spokes, 0 cross non-drive/2 cross drive side. Rims have machined sidewalls for rim brakes.
