Wanted - Lightweight rear wheel

After much arse seeing this weekend trying to get bargain wheels to fit the Badger I've decided to just ask and see if anyone has a proper wheel to fit him.
I've got 2 standard rear and 1 standard front ones that could be used in any deal should the other party so desire.


It's not the size of the dog in the fight that matters, but the size of the fight in the dog.

Just as a minor detail, can anyone tell me the difference between a standard and a lightweight wheel?

Just so I know what I'm looking for!

The thicker part of the spokes are towards the hub,rather than the rim.

Here's a comparison pic:
Left (black) is the original heavy wheel with the spokes thicker at the rim.
Right (bronze) is the later light wheel with the spokes thinner at the rim.

HTH.

If you want to get creative, the wheels themselves are all the same, it's just the bearing and the inner spacer that are different between fittings.

When I did the fork conversion on my 600/620 hybrid, we knocked the bearings out and replaced the spacer and bearings to take the bigger axle.

Much cheaper than buying a new wheel, and you get new bearings!

You may be able to hunt around and get a cheaper front off something else, and do the same to make it fit.

Been down that road and just got P'd off with the faffing about!

Another kind chap on here has one in the right colour too.
