I've worn out the bearings in my rear wheel and I am having immense trouble finding a replacement rear wheel or wheelset that is intended for racing.
Chainreactions and winstanleys both fall short.
Anyone know a good place I can source these from or is able to list some brands that make race rims/hubs for 24" bikes so I can try and get a one custom built?

I ended up fixing my wheel instead.
The bearings inside had worn down and eventually smashed, causing it to come off the races, so they where running on the threaded part of my axle, grinding each other to dust.
I bought some new hub bearings and a new axle and race. I had to angle grind down the races a little bit as they where too wide for my chain stay width at first.
I did find some 24" wheels in the end (after a lot of searching) but they where £300 race set, more than I wanted to spend on a Redline MX I bought for £250.
