I see... well, looks like sealed is the way to go. Thanks Ken for the heads up i was hoping that wasn't the case. Snowflakes are apparently hard to find these days. Somebody should make new ones that would be tits! But if i can't figure out all this sealed conversion monkey business i might be looking to get some 5 stars.... or maybe some spokes. It kinda seems like a new complete set of wheels in general for Puchs are hard to come by except for old/new frankensteined rims and hubs. Maybe i'm just not looking hard enough or i'm just wrong i don't know. The Bernardi 17" five stars on treats look viable, but i don't know about not having that rear brake adjuster thingy. how would that work out?
