I'm currently loving riding my '85 Canyon on the the South Downs and need to do something about my wheels. They are the original wheels - Rigida rims on Suzue hubs - 5 speed.
problem is the spokes are awful, slack and, well,old. So, what to do? hubs are ok but a little worn.
Shall I get them respoked, live with the hubs?
Or shall I replace them? maybe with 6 speed ones?
roulette is what would I get? I love the fact they are original and of their time so what else would work on this bike do you think? What were the best wheels around then, or maybe a little later in the 80s?viewtopic.php?f=6&t=122606&start=30
Any advice would've greatly received. I hope everyone is fine and well, been of the site for ages!!
