TT wheels: Part number?

Recommended Posts

I put a serious scrape and dent on my rear wheel. Unfixable, or at least, I will no longer trust it. So, now I'm looking at used TT wheels.

I believe the earlier edition 2001 TT's had solid spokes, later hollow. Anyone know the part numbers for the hollow spoke TT wheels, or how to tel one from the other? Does the metal........aaaaarrrrrgh.. mental block, you know, the thingie to put air in......... if it's metal, does it mean it's the hollow spoke?

There's another one one guy is calling Turbo II. Never heard of that one. Is that the same as Turbo Look II ?

All solid spoke wheels have ribs on the back of the spokes. That is, if you feel behind each wheel spoke there are ribbed re-enforcements. Hollow spoke wheels have no ribs they are smooth and they also have metal (air) valves since the wheel is hollow. You should stay away from any chromed hollow spoke wheels as it weakens them and the process can damage the wheels... even one year later. I've seen one of these and the guy is lucky to be alive.

Since you have a C4S, you are looking for 11" rears? Not the 993TT 10" rears right?
