Atom front wheel built with a Rigida rim, the hub hailing from France and dating back to 1979. Made from aluminium/steel and weighing in at 1018 g. A fine choice for keeping your vintage bike authentic, but also great for any other compatible bike too.

If you're taking part in L'Eroica or a similar vintage event, this is fully compliant - so rest assured, the pre-1987 police won't lock you up for having the wrong wheel!

The wheel's been fully serviced by one of our mechanics and graded as OK condition, but do take a good look at the detailed photos so you can see the cosmetic condition before you buy.

Rim Size - this should match the size your bike is designed to fit. Standard/full size tubulars only come in one wheel size, these are often referred to as 28" or 700c (sometimes even 27"). These are all the same size, the next size down is 26", so any rim larger than 26" will be a standard/full size tubular.

Bike Type - this is really just a guide, as technically any wheel can be used on any bike as long as everything's compatible. Within reason of course - we wouldn't recommend riding a skinny tubular road wheel down a mountain!

Drilling - the number of spokes in the wheel.

Spacing (O.L.D.) - the width of the hub measured at its widest point, from the outside of the locking end nuts (O.L.D. = Over Locknut Dimension), not including the hub axle. This measurement needs to match the inside of your fork's dropouts. Steel forks can be stretched or squeezed a few mm but it's always best to avoid this if possible, aluminium or carbon forks should never be stretched.
