    Sun doesn't sell direct. Used to be able to order these through Sportaid. And some bicycle shops can get them via their Sun Ringle accounts.
    Spinergy used to sell the rims for their Wires, but that, too, has been quite a while ago. Phone number's on their website. Ryan Baker is the wheelchair guy (also a user).

    You can attach riv-nut handrims to any wheel, regardless of the wheel rim type. Riv-nut handrims attach to the spokes, not the wheel rim. No need to seek special wheel rims.

    See my guide here and let me know if you have any questions

    Thanks I will give that a try. Does it matter if I put it on the outside spoke or inside spoke? Does it make a difference?

    Outside.

    I mean... I don't imagine it matters physics-wise, but I can't think of a reason not to put them on the outside spokes.

    Nick, your site is showing 4, 6, and 8 riv nut rims. Are the 4's and 8's usually bought by racers? I was surprised to see them.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    I have push rims. I want to build a set of wheels using wheels I already have but instead of the 24 inch rims I want 25/26 inch rims since that is what I have gone to for the most part

    The reason I asked is that I was thinking I could use the sleeves I already have that came with the wheels, I will be taking push rims off of wheels I have, and if I attach to the inside spokes it looks like the push rims will stick out from the wheel the same distance as the do now
