TOPIC: New Wheelset

New Wheelset 3 years 3 months ago #3987

Can anyone advise on a new alu wheel-set. My Mavic Kysrium Elite is buckled so am after a good solid set of usable wheels over the full year, for every situation. Don't want to spend too much but will spend if it's really worth it.
Any advice gratefully received.
Thanks

Are you thinking handbuilts route, Ol? I had some Archetypes knocked up last year and they've been ace - put 25s on them but the wide rim makes them feel even bigger, comfy as! I'd bet you could get a set with 105 hubs or similar for around £300ish.

Pacenti SL23 seem like a nice alternative too, similarly wide, although I can't vouch personally.

I've had landmine-proof Open Pros too, which you could probably get on some decent hubs within budget. Excellights too.

That's if you can be arsed with the faff of sorting them, of course.

Cheers. Are you offering to build them for me?! I! Happy to go the hand built route, if there ISNA good wheel builder out there. I would not have a clue.
I'll look into that though. Thanks

Check out Wiggle some great deals on wheels at present.

Buckled......as in bent rim?

Have you taken your wheel to a builder to see if it can be repaired?

Yep. Fraid so. Can't fully repair the rim so either new rim and re-build or new wheel set?! Hmmm...
