    Any LBS still stock 20mm 26" front wheel?

    Trying to finish an older build.

    Anyone knows a shop that still have 20mm front axle disc wheel for 26" diameter? Don't want anything fancy. I can get something very decent online for about hundred fifty, but would like to give business to anyone locally first.

    Thanks

    thanks Stripes, unfortunately they (Trailhead) are out as well. Just called them.

    Guess this is one of those situation where I visit the online bike store across the pond.

    Anyone has one lying around in their garage by chance?

    Any chance the rim and rest of the wheel in decent condition? Seeing they came from sx and demo, i assume they have seen their days?

    the one off of the sx is pretty beat. the demo wheel is good. also give pinkbike buy/sell section a browse, there are probably tons on there too

    I have an old azonic outlaw wheelset. The front is 20mm as I used it on my Pike fork. I believe it works fine, though I might be missing the spacers for it.

    if you don't mind weight, canfield brothers was closing out one of their 26" wheelsets (choice of 20 or 15 up front), rear is a 142 x12

    Not sure where you are located, but I think that ABS in Santa Cruz would stock this sort of thing.

    I have a set of AM Sunringle Prochargers that I'd let go for cheap. They're light and only used for a year, but they're white. I mean: Best of all, they're white!
    Ladies and gentlemen, take my advice--pull down your pants and slide on the ice.

    Thanks for the reply everyone.

    My 26"er build will require a 20mm front, but traditional 9mmx135 QR in the back. Is an older frame, so I have to live with the set up.

    I love to take some of your offers. Do suspect that you guys that have wheelsets for cheap have 20mm upfront and 12x142 back instead of 9mmx135mm old school QR?

    Not that I care about color, but front rim one color and back rim a different color is a bit too rad for an old frame ( I will likely have to buy a rear wheel somewhere). Please feel free to let me know if you guys have something that matches my setup. Thanks a bunch!

    Order something like Hope Hoops online, takes 20 seconds to swap front caps.

    I have a spare Nukeproof generator wheelset, bright yellow and somewhat heavy, but sturdy - 135 bolt on, 20mm front if that fits your build..Not sure what a fair price would be..

    In case it helps with the rear wheel... if you find something 142x12 convertible to 135x12, you can always convert it to standard QR
