    I would just buy a used 24 inch bike for parts. Plentiful and cheap.

    Some of the trials bike companies might get real close to 50mm. I used to run Echo TRs on my bikes when I did that sort of thing.

    try calling 3G, they sell 24"x57mm wheels, the rims aren't listed separately on their website but might be worth a phone call,or if you could use the complete wheels...

    Thanks for all the replies. I ordered a set of the 3G wheels, and the quality of these rims left a lot to be desired. I’ll try some of the other sources, thanks.

    Just looked at the unicycle rims, they looked very nice, but only come in 32 holes! I wish I could have used these!

    Has anyone ever purchased rims from Russia before?

    Might really help to know the application and budget. If you want super tough get a trials or mountain bike rim. If you’re building a cruiser you might want to avoid the price and maybe the look of cut out rims.

    It was a thought. The rims in my link say they are 36 hole.
