I would like to possibly find some new wheels for my KNock. Do you know of any aftermarket that would fit? I like this style, they remind me of a HotWheels car.

Those wheels are made by Weld Racing. They're called "Blade".

I had those on my bike:



My front wheel was $1105 and my rear wheel was $2800. Last I knew, Weld was going to stop making them, but I have seen them on the site recently.

You could try calling Amy at Weld Racing and asking about your wheel sizes. Just tell her I sent you, we had a pretty good business relationship in the past.

to DAMN expensive for me. I just wanted something sort of cheap and round unlike the spoke wheels on my Knock.

I can do some research for you, but I would have to know the wheel size and the axle diameter.

I know on the front the axle diameter is 12mm. I have a static balancer with a 12mm shaft and it fits absolutely perfect. I'm not sure about the rear, I know it's a touch bigger. As for wheel size the rear tire size is 130/90-15 so it's a 15 inch wheel. the front tire can fit a 100/90-18 on it so I guess that's an 18 inch wheel. Don't know if that helps or not. I'm working on your sticker too.

The Yamaha Virago uses the same wheels as the Knock. Well, almost. The 1996 Virago I have uses a 15" rear and a 18" front. The rear uses a 14mm Axle bolt same as the Knock and I believe the front uses a 12mm same as the knock. Not 100% positive on the front wheel. 100% on the rear. The hub is alot wider on the Virago pushing the sprocket over towards the left a good bit. You would definitely have to make new spacers to get it to line up correctly with the knock motor and you would probably have to have a rear sprocket made as the Virago sprocket is alot bigger.

The Virago wheels are just barely narrower than the knock wheels. Maybe 1/2 a millimeter. Not much.

Most knocks I've touched, the wheels are fine, it's the tires that suck balls. If you get wheels the same as you knock, that won't fix your problem as you will have the same tire choices. If you go with a 16" wheel in the rear, you'll have to change fenders and probably move/replace the frame cross bar supports so the wheel and tire will clear.

Are you sure your wheels suck and not your tires?

No, I'm not sure. To be honest, I think I would like to be able to change wheels at some point. I know I need a new front tire. I have some small bulges in the sidewalls on it. As far as the rear goes, I think it's pretty good. I also have a stock Kikker whitewall rear that I'm going to put on soon. It seems to be pretty good too. Thanks CotJockey for the info. I really just want to see what my options are for wheels.
