The Andar 321 disc rim is for carrying load. It's not light but that's why you are looking. if you are carrying load in your panniers or on your person then this is the rim for you. There is no weight limit.
That is the reason that this range is extremely popular with bike travellers and e-bike riders. The disc only rim combines modern looks with a bigger internal width. The 21 millimetre internal width will give an optimized support to wider tyres that can be ridden at lower pressures.
The hubs are BORG DX by Miche. The bearings are 6803 by SKF with 5 bearings in the rear and 2 in the front. These are bearings made to a higher set of tollerance than normal bearing found in bicyle hubs so they last longer. The freehub has a titatnium core/pawl seats with three pawls. The 30T ratchet ring is hardened steel. The rear hub has been tested by Miche to over 300Nm of torque. You wont break it and if you do its a warranty issue.

COVID 19 update. Overseas shipping is now with a courier only. UPS or Parcel force.
Orders placed in the afternoon normally get sent the next workday where possible. Orders placed before noon are often sent the same day but this is not guaranteed. Priority is given to Royal Mail Special delivery items always.
Same day disptach is not guaranteed due to volume of mail order. In general we are not operating with big delays in dispatch if any.
- Standard shipping is with Royal Mail using there 24 service. Cost £3. This is not a guaranteed service and takes 1-7 days normally but can be longer. The tracking number is not tracking but is a conformation of delivery code. If the item has been delivered to you or a neighbour then the tracking shows something otherwise it won't. If the item is needed urgently then pay for the courier/special delivery.
- For a £7 surcharge, a next day (not sunday) tracked service (from dispatch) with Royal mail special delivery is used. You get an hour delivery slot by text. It's a fine service and worth the money. This only works for items up to 2kg. beyond that it gets very expensive and Parcel Force 24 tracked is used.
- Rims are sent by courier only- cost £10. UPS is used. A phone number and email address must be supplied to allow me to book in. This service can also be picked for smaller items that you want delivered by UPS.
- Wheels shipping cost is £15 (cost of courier + cost of the box) next day. To NI, Scottish Islands, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and that is a two day service.
Due to the disruption in postal services during 2020, misdeliveries, customs issues and long delays all overseas shipping is now with UPS or Parcel Force. Parcel mass and destination affect price. So the following applies. I do not offer cheaper slower mail services anymore. Please don't ask as it means you have not read this page. There is no circumstance where i will use a cheaper service.
