1190 Adventure Wheels

Hello,

My front wheel on my 1190 requires a the rim replaced due to a little too much adventure in recent riding. I have priced the rim a nearing £500.00 excluding the stripping down and rebuilding costs which leads my to looking at a full replacement rim at nearing £700.00 with new hub, new spokes and new bearings and seals. This then lead me onto looking at trick anodised aftermarket wheels like Kineo and Alpina. The Kineo wheel is gorgeous but expensive and only available in 17" from what I gather.

The Alpina wheel is available in the correct sizing and reasonably priced.

Are there any other options for the 19/17 Adventure bike?

Cheers for that fella, I hadn't spotted those :) I've sent the a message asking if the OEM tyre pressure monitors can be retained or not. They are a stunning wheel but at a price. I think I'd best put the computer away tonight before the alcohol buy them lol.

I've just noted Alpina only offer 2.5" rims for the front. I'm not sure if this is an error or a we cant do 3.5x19" rims. I might send them a message too.

I've decided to get the wheel repaired due to Alpina not yet doing a 3 or 3.5" rim in 19" diameter and the 12 week lead on kineo wheels (not like a can afford a second bikes worth of money for wheels). So, as I've been let down locally, I've sent it to Jim Aim today for their guys down their to sort it out for me. Only problem is its gonna be a week before they can take a look at it :-( Hope its an easy fix once they get to it.

Prudent moves. Those wheels are so beautiful that it might only take a couple of drinks to convince you that you absolutely needed them.

I actually found myself thinking, "Boy, if those Kineos are lighter than my BSTs I'll dump the BSTs and buy them!" How dumb is that.
