rim rot

  1. Transalp
    Need some advice how to get a properly made rear rim fitted to my hub after rear rim has rotted away on my 1995 model. Discovered it when I was pulling off the tire for the first time on my 1995 model. How do you fit the hose by the way, do you use rim lock ? Thanks.

    I'm going to have another look at a 98 T/A in the near future with a view to buying,the original rims were in good nick and I was wondering if I do buy it what would be the best way to keep the rim rot at bay or is it just inevitable it will happen at some point.

    my 600 has the dreaded rim rot so has anyone here got a good rear wheel? the bike is a 1998 so almost one of the last 600's. am i correct in saying a 650 wheel would also fit? if i have no luck here it has to be off to Talon for new rim and spokes.

    ...part II. Ok, sorry to go over old ground, but there was something I was hoping that someone on here would have experience with. I've got a '91 RD04 which has started to succumb to the dreaded rim rot. (web.rodentia.org.uk/wheels) I got a few quotes for a blast and powder coat and rebuild...

    anyone else have this problem? just noticed my rear rim is starting to split. only a little (about one inch) part of the rim is lifting but the bike is a '98 Alp so not very impressed about it.
