Hi folks.
During a recent rear wheel bearing change, I have discovered that my rear wheel rim is very badly corroded, and some of the spokes are very close to simply pulling straight out of the rim. I am having bother finding a good replacement. Is it possible to get aftermarket wheels or rims for this bike? Not something i have had to do on any of my other bikes, if anyone can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks,
Bov

Replacement aftermarket rims can be laced to your standard hub. It's expensive, but not uncommon.
Depending on budget, this is best for longevity, but good 'used' do come up occasionally and will give you a few years use.
I have a used Gold RD04 rim just taken off, but maybe better than yours.
PM if you'd like photos. Spoke areas are fine on mine, and the corrosion is mainly cosmetic. Replaced as I found a better one.
