Spinnergy buckle


De Vlaamse Leeuw

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

My brother bought a second-hand spinnergy wheelset recently, and i don't know what happened, but the front wheel now buckles.  Do any of you know if this can be fixed or not? and if so, how and where?

Yes it can be fixed. A buckle is not the end of the road for a good wheel.

 

Contact Icycling her on The Hub, he's the agent.

If they are then they are pretty much toast... those wheels' spokes were riveted to the rim under tension and if its cracked then I don't see much hope unfortunately, I've seen it happen on a couple of the four spoke spinergys. Also keep in mind that those wheels went out of production about 8-10 years ago...

What I have read above is correct. So if it is an old 4 spoke - game over. But lets face it the 4 spoked wheel has probably given excellent service over the past 8 years plus!
