Finding that particular wheel is nearly, if not completely, impossible, especially if you use a large wheel.

It's not just that relatively few of them were ever made, it's that the wheel is soft (when compared to other urethane compounds) and tends to degrade with use. So most of them have found their way to landfills or incinerators by now.

The only person who really toyed around with custom wheels was Merlyn, but he's out of the sport now. It's died down a LOT. I doubt you'd be able to find these, really. Maybe see if there's someone on eBay or Etsy with something similar? It's a strange design, though, so I'd be surprised.

They were crap wheels, honestly, so don't be too sad if you don't get your hands on a pair.

Meh, I'm not sure I would call them crap.

I love my BDs. Stuck some bones bearings in them and never looked back.

25MPH downhill with those wheels, deathwish.
