    66.5" spigot bore of the Gen 2 rim
    Outer diameter roughing
    Inner diameter boring (then finish cut outer to make sure all runs perfectly true)
    Spacer in hand
    Spacer in wheel

    I expect we'll see pix of Gen 2 wheels on a Gen 1 here soon.
    STR racing makes a 20 spoke that looks like the Gen 2 wheel and it has a 66.6 mm center bore. Does it need a spacer like the one shown here? Does someone sell them, or was this a one-off deal?
    The size and offset is a little off of stock, but should work fine.

    2 x STR 615 20X10.5 5X112 ET35 CB66.67 MAGIC COPPER - $536.00

    2 x STR 615 20X9 5X112 ET30 CB66.67 MAGIC COPPER - $536.00

    To put those on a Gen 1 you will need spacers.
    To put them on a Gen 2 you will need spacers for the fronts.

    The spacers I made for the person who purchased the wheels from me are a one off set. I'm not interested in making any more of them.

    Speak with Wheelb here on the site and see if they can supply you with them.

    Just installed Gen2 20" on my Gen 1 Spyder. I really like the look and ride. Inspired by this post!
