    FYI you'll get more eyes on it if you remove the word 'handcycle' and list it on eBay as a regular bicycle rear wheel, which it is.
    Also, you say it's both 650 and 26 and 590, which isn't possible. 650 is different than 559/26 and is different than 590.

    If you want to maximize your eBay audience you'll want to include the following:

    - The actual wheel/tire size - just saying 650 isn't enough because there's both 650b and 650c.
    - The number of speeds - "27 speed" isn't the way things are said anymore. Just count the number of gears on the wheel itself. Should be 9, 10, or 11.
    - The cassette range - this is listed as, for example, "11-26t" meaning there are 11 teeth on the smallest gear and 26 on the largest. The teeth numbers should be stamped somewhere on each ring. If you want to get real precise, include a complete breakdown like this: 11-12-13-14-15-16-17-19-21-23-26

    Good luck
