Hello all I am able to get the C50C wheels now. They are $800.00 shipped. The bearing are seperate. But I will discount them an extra 5% if bought with the wheels. I will mount tires on them for $15.00 a tire. They will not be balenced becouse the bearings are not installed. I will sell tires at an extra 5% off also if they are purchased with the wheels.

P.S. Here is a pic of a Customers rear wheel.

I think they are boring looking too. Chrome or Powder coated may help but the spoke design looks awfully plain and unimaginative to me.

Yeah I agree Wade. On my bike a nice Electric Blue color would rock! and Either Packer Green or Packer yellow would look sweet on yours. Or maybe alternate colors on every other spoke. Who was it that I saw that had their spokes colored Red?? Man that was HOT!!!

I think color matched to the bike powder coating would look sweet. Otherwise, stock color doesnt do it for me either.

The guy who's picture that is has his mounted on his bike already and the color looks awesome!

It's a shade darker then his black/silver c50 but they look far better then the spokes.

Cooler looking ones in chrome are 2000 bucks.......These are 800 bucks. Bearings are very cheap even at the dealer.

Thank you for offering them to us here. It is a nice option to know we have. It is hard to sell things like this to Metric riders especially 800cc ones. They want all the bling but only want to pay a buck or two. Thanks again for the offer.

I'm getting pretty close to pulling the trigger on these. I just like the idea of running tubeless tires and being able to do a simple pucture repair rather having to get the bike towed.

You CAN put Tubeless Tires on the spoked rims... Can't you???

You can put tubeless tires on tube rims, but they'll still need tubes. The problem is the spoke holes. In fact, I think every tire you can buy for the Vol is technically tubeless.

Sure...but you can't plug a puncture in a tubless tire that has a tube in it. Something that you would need because of the spokes.

The reason to have a tubeless tire is so you CAN plug it and not be stranded along side of the rode as I said you can put a tubeless on a spoked rim BUT you have to seal the rim first (its nearly impossible to repair a flat on a C50 that has tubes on the road plus it's dangerous)
