The Largest Cycle Wheel in Town

As part of our Big Wheel Project South London based JR Cycles has made the largest cycle wheel in town.

Giant Cycle Bike Wheel

The wheel was constructed over the course of a week by two local engineers who work at JR Cycles. The wheel itself was constructed from strips of steel, a turned duralumin hub and thirty-six aluminum rods for spokes.

The cycle wheel is around 63 Inches in diameter, almost three times the size of an average cycle wheel and the largest in the Croydon and probably London area.

The wheel is available for viewing in the shop although it is unlikely to fit any standard bike!
