As I am slowly becoming more mechanically inclined with my bicycle, I have arrived to a very foreign matter known as "The Wheels". So I purchased a set of wheels (just the rims and spokes assembled) for a really good deal since mine are really warped and dented, but I have never replaced the hub and or swapped wheels. As I eagerly moved my tube and tire to the new rims and started pumping the tire I heard a pop...of course. There was no "fabric" around the wheel well and the tube tried to expand in the multiple little holes and popped. Can I purchase the "fabric" and is it easy to assemble. Last question, is it easy to install a flip/flop gear without much knowledge.
Thanks again for helping a wheel newbie.
