As you probably know I am a big fan of wood and the use of it for bicycles. Although I finished my Renovo wooden bike project recently, I thought it would be cool to build a wooden disc wheel for it too. One that I can also use for my new vintage time trial bike (more info on that one still to come).
My father builds wooden furniture for a living, so I have access to wood an the right tools. All I need now is an axle assembly. Does anyone know where I can find one of these? I know Corima sells a track conversion kit for their disc wheels, so I have already e-mailed the distributor if they are willing to sell me an axle assembly for a road disc wheel. Older MAVIC 3G and ZIPP disc wheels also had interchangeable axles, so I also e-mailed the MAVIC and ZIPP distributors. No luck on Ebay so far.
Does anybody know of another option?
Here are some nice examples of other wooden rear wheels:
