Afternoon all,

If anyone has a 650c wheel could they provide me with the internal rim diameter please.

Thanks,

Richard

Not sure what you mean by internal rim diameter?

I've got plenty of these wheels so let me know which measurement your after and i'll get measuring for you...

cheers

If its for spoke size surely each make of rim will be different.

Exactly - 650's usually have aero rims so Wolbers, Shamals etc all have very different depths. That's why I didn't quite understand the original post.

Ok, fair point, apologies for being so cryptical - the measurement from brake surface to brake surface - the internal diameter and the external diameter too please.

Clincher or Tub?

This is for your tyre quandary I'm guessing....

Clincher would be best i suppose.

And yes it relates to my tyre query which relates to this -

19mm outer width on a Mavic clincher rim with 14mm internal. Same as a 700c.

More importantly the tyre spec - 23-571 or 650x23C.

Have you tried sourcing tyres from Dahon or similar - they do 24" & 26" I think for they're folding bikes - I was told to contact them when I was sourcing a 650c clincher but one came up on ebay as NOS so I snaffled that instead.
