Solid wheel for a good price. I had an unusually hard time finding a wheel with these specs. I tried to get the local coop to teach me how to build a wheel but they didn't have time to give me the full attention. So I went to my local store, which has sold me stuff for a 1970's bike before, but they didn't have a suitable replacement wheel. This one works great and only needed a tiny bit of truing out of the box. I was very happy to get back on the road on my favorite bike for lazy days.
I was surprised these were pretty decent for the price. They're not light, by any means (I got the matching front wheel too) but they are straight and true, and haven't gone out of true from hitting potholes. The bearings are loose ball-type, and need to be greased before you ride them. Also, the ones I got were drilled for Schraeder valves, not Prestas. Not a huge deal. The hubs look nice, had no problems getting tires on the rim, and overall, a good budget buy for a classic bike rebuild.
Note: it says it in the description, but just in case... this is a 126mm OLD axle wheel, for old 10 and 12-speed bikes. This is exactly what I wanted it for, but if you're looking for a wheel on the cheap for a newer bike, this isn't it.
Good rim, drilled for shcrader value some reason could have swore the listing said presta, not the end of the world, don't ruin your dust caps! You will NOT be able to find replacements.
