What is the part called that the spokes go into on a demountable rim? Are they available on the market?
Not the rim and not the hub. The outer ring
Thats it! Thanks
Are new metal fellows available anywhere on the market?
Felloe, I thought. Fellows are usually jolly good.
In case it makes a difference in finding what you are looking for, I believe it's "felloe".
Will,what size are you looking for? I have a stack of 21 inch ones and maybe a few 30x31/2 's
Jack, Im looking for a friends model T, 30 X 3-1/2
Have not seen any reproductions, but there are many good used ones that will clean up nicely. Good luck
there are a couple different styles for this part. You really need to know which one, if this is to match the others, and presumably fit the rim. Do a search on wheels and you'll find pix of them and you can have your friend match which one he needs.
They vary by manufacturer.
Hayes demountable clincher rims have a lug that extends back onto the rim across the bead. On other rims the lug ends at the bead.
Hayes felloes have a notch to accommodate those lugs.
See, I learn something new everyday. Thanks Steve.
I will have to check my own T and see what I have
For what it is worth. Felly is also a correct word for that part of a wheel. Some old dictionaries give "felly" as the preferred form over "felloe". Both "fellies" and "felloes" for plural spellings.
Most newer dictionaries don't show the word at all. Except for the jolly good fellow.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
And aren't there 2 different size tenon holes too?
These folks make both rims and felloes. And yes there are different size holes for the spokes. If you order from them, you need to tell them the size spoke and they will punch the felloes for you. They will also prime them if you ask.
Holes are 1/2" and 5/8".
