What 20" rims are you using for your warriors? And why? :)

TerraTrike
Why?? Why not.
Already laced, high quality, will accept disc brakes, recommended,

Do a few searches, amazing what you may find!

Velocity Fusions in 451 because they are fast and swoopy -- yes, "swoopy" is a real term meaning something that has that incalculable, inescapable coolness factor that just can not be quantified but just is to the max...

I have a brand new set of Terratrike rims (20"), and 2 new Formula Hubs 20mm w/disc mounts. I still have both new in box. I have around 80. in them. They can be yours for this price plus shipping.

unfourtenately I am on the other side of the pond so shipping will most likely be high. And I want all black wheels :)

I have been eying a similar rim, the Alex R390 but I somehow got the ide in my head that they wernt strong enough, how is yours holding up?

Cheapest ones I can find at my local bike shop as always.
Why? Because the low cost components are as durable as the high cost components, and I am HARD on my stuff.

I got my from Jetset Rims, ordered through Bitex. You can get them any color you want, I got mine black powder coated. Caveat: The sides where caliper brakes make contact were also powder coated, making that type of brake unuseable, and disc brakes necessary.

cheapest I could find, $35 with tyres. No disk fixings so make my own adapters

I have the 451 Fusions on the front of a DeltaWolf that I do not baby and have had zero problems. Remember that on a tadpole trike the front wheels take about 70 percent of the load -- each wheel therefore only 35 percent of the total load. Since these are originally designed for handling 50 percent of hard riding, I have no fear of any problems with using these on my warrior.

I just found this these wheels at Northern Tools. Would this be handy?

Here is a pertinent portion of a comment about the wheels you mention:

"Don't plan on using them with brakes - the steel rims would technically work with some rim brakes, but NOT very effectively.
They are heavy as sin - not at all like a bike wheel! The bearings are a little shakey as well, I wouldn't put this on anything going over 5-10mph."

Good points!! Don't know what I was thinking... blinded by the low price I guess.

Yes, the yard cart wheels are not good for a bike. Even the hubs are just pressed and folded over the spokes!

Since my loderunner is my first build, I'm using what I had on hand. Next build will be the warrior, and I'll have to purchase some rims for that. Unless I happen to find someone getting rid of a few BMX bikes locally.

I haven't ordered them yet, but these will be the rims (http://www.ebikestop.com/sun_rhyno_lite_20_36h_all_black_rim_schrader_valve-RM8507.php) I'm going with

I went with this for the rear wheel (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003RLJJTM/ref=oh_o00_s04_i00_details).
