Hello!
Sorry, I use an electronic translator.
I have some questions.
Maybe you can help me.
I have a Norco threshold a tiagra 2018 bike
https://www.norco.com/bikes/2018/dirt-dropbar/cyclocross/threshold-aluminum/threshold-a-tiagra/
I want to change knitting needles and rims.
Please advise which rims to buy for this bike.
My weight is 80kg. My road is 95% asphalt (roads for cars) 5% flat ground.
And another big question.
I do not know which FRONT HUB and REAR HUB are installed on my bike. Perhaps you know?
I need to know this to calculate the length of the spokes for new rims.
Have a nice day!

    You need to tell us your budget, and maybe also the reason why you want to change that, e.g, old ones broken, get faster...

    knitting needles? Do you mean spokes?

    My spokes often break.
    The master checked the tension of the spokes with a tensometer.
    All the same, the spokes break.
    I ride my bike carefully.
    For several years I rode an old road bike, spokes were okay.
    I want to change the rims because they have an uneven seam (there is a defect).
    Rims are needed light and durable.

    You will need some bomb proof rims. And ensure they roll well. 20 hole on the rear with 2:1 asymmetric lacing.
