Unique wheel Maybe with these nipples
After 8000km (and more than 5 million rotations!), the rim of the front wheel of my Dahon P18 was worn out. This wheel has just been rebuit with a new rim, new nipples and a new rim tape.
The spokes are original and the painting does not hold on it. All the spokes have no equal quality and Dahon chose poor ones !
The front hub does not carry a huge load with a folding bike, but it remains quite beefy despite the tiny bearings. 74mm format would also be great for recumbents. This hub seems a bit light to consider mounting it in front of a recumbent bike.
