I make my own. Have a local bike shop BUILD you a 27" or 700c wheel using a BMX hub. You can't bend that axle! Fill the tire with whatever you want. I just use the tire and tube as is and use my old weighted wheel for the rotating stool demos. It's quite simple to weight this, though.

Tappers,

In your opinion, who has the best bicycle wheels with weighted rims for
gyroscope/angular momentum demos.

Thanks,
Dale
