Anyone know anything about Wheeler bikes? I found a frame and some parts at a garage sale for free and picked it up. Easton ProGram tubing. Its definitely from around 94-95... let me know.

Wheeler are German. Used to do so high end stuff (maybe they still do?).
Here's an ad from MBA in 1992

"Second Gear" became "Second Ave. Sports," and with the name went all the cool retro stuff. I know, as a consignment shop, it had some pretty good finds. Now they sell Konas and Felts, but its all new stuff. I went in the other day asking about possible stickers for my 1994 Kona Lava Dome rebuild, and they laughed at me. They sell hockey stuff to cater to the new rink in town, and I guess they do ok. For me, I'll stick with the Durango Cycling.

BTW, the Wheeler is on Ebay US if anyone's interested.
