I need to replace the rear rim on my Brompton
30 Jan 2018
Actual rim ALESA ALLOY - 219 - 349x19 with a 5 gears Sturmey Archer Sprinter hub and 151 mm spokes.
Does your answer to Marcello in 2014 (SJSC N° 720) still stand?
Hi there,

Brompton single wall rims are no longer produced, so I would suggest upgrading to a double wall rim.

Is this rim suitable to rebuild a 6 speed Brompton rear wheel, using existing spokes?
03 Dec 2017

Yes this rim is suitable. - as long as your current rim is the same not a single wall rim. For reference the spoke length for a BSR or BWR hub to this rim is 146mm.
Generally there is a sticker on the rim for guidance, but otherwise, fronts use standard, rear 1/2 speed uses standard, rear 3/6 uses angled.

How Much Does It Weigh?

Out of curiosity, how much does this rim weigh, so I can compare it with Sun or Ryde rims?

Thank you.

This rim weighs 327grams on our scales.

Is This The Wheel For Building A Rohloff Into? Also What Lenght Spokes Do I Require?

You won't be able to use this rim with a Rohloff as these rims are only 28 hole and most Rohloff hubs are 32h. For a 16
Spoke Length For Aw Hub
12 Aug 2016
Hi, I'm building a rear wheel for my Brompton using a 1988 Sturmey Archer AW Hub. What spoke length would be correct with the double wall rim? Also, I know I will need washers for the hub end, but do I need washers for the rim end?
Hi, you need 146mm built 2 cross pattern. If using 14 gauge spokes we recommend using spoke washers at the hub end. If you are using 13 gauge there's no need for washers. Washers are not required at the rim end.
Spokes For This Rim
26 Aug 2014
The rim on my rear wheel is dying, and I've two questions actually.
1) I'm a commuter, I do not intend to use my Brompton as a MTB. For this use, does this rim offer a benefit over the "old" Brompton single wall rim?
2) I've a 3 speed SRAM hub. If I finally opt for this fancy rim, what spokes would I need to rebuild my rear wheel?
Thanks for your help!

These are the new standard rim, the older ones have been discontinued. The rim basically offers more strength without adding much extra weight. The spokes you require for your hub with these rims are the 148mm length SJSC part number 31196.

Can you please confirm me if this is the correct rim, to replace the one I have on my Brompton. I need the rim that fits the Sturmey Archer Sprinter 5 speed hub, that has 28 spokes. I will wait for your response, to order it. Thanks, Marcelo.

If you're looking to upgrade to the new double wall rim then yes this is the correct one, but this will mean you will need a different spoke length to what you previously would have used. If you are looking to re-use your old spokes as well then you can still purchase the old Brompton single wall rim which is SJSC part number: 720.
