Hey vital, so I've got an old t1 w crappy xgames front wheel because it was all I could find with a 14mm axle, that being said id like nothing more than to replace it. I've only been able to find two complete front wheels with 14mm axles ones a gusset that I'm not to hot on and one is the eastern buzzip front. Just wondering if anyone has had experienced eastern rims and have feedback or could point me into a better wheel for 120 bucks .

The Buzzip front wheel has a 14mm INTERNAL axle but still has 3/8" bolts for your forks. It's going to be very difficult to track down 14mm front axles. Your best bet is going to be 2nd hand or call up a mail order service and see if they can track one down for you.

I'm pretty sure if you go directly through the Profile webstore you can still order a Mini front hub with a 14mm axle. Not sure where you could find a complete wheel though...

Jackass. You just had to say that didnt you....

I was thinking "Hmmmm maybe I should pull the trigger on in the 99 Master wheelset, keep the Heffer triple walls, and send you the front hub." But the shipping price from where I am to where you are is gonna cost something expensive.

$114 though...

Bid on this Mosh hub on ebay, it's going for $20 right now. Then just build it up

That isn't a bad looking wheel at all. I'd run it.

Wait...do you not run pegs?

If not, GET A 3/8ths and run spacers to save a little weight.

I don't run pegs Dave, the dirt circuit is about 7 mins from my house and i usually only cruise around the alleys and such if im riding in the hood. I do lots of trails and lots of jumps. I appreciate all of your suggestions and am still looking into a more expensive wheel set in the future so ill definitely be doing research based on your suggestions.
