When planning a tour I usually eye up the road bike but always end up taking the touring bike, with it's heavy duty wheelset instead. Has anyone taken the plunge and toured with modern, low spoke count wheels? How did it work out for you?
2 Front wheels
3 Rear wheels.
I understand one of these rear wheels maybe from a BMX bike as it has an axle that is thicker than the other 4 wheels?
Ideal size for making a toe-along cycle cart.

What`s out there please? Not looking to spend loads, maybe £100 or so (plus postage). After something with cartridge bearings and Shimano hub to put on my Secteur, as the original cup and cone wheels are cr*p, and heavy.

After looking at various bikes for a winter roadie for commuting, I think I'm going for the Triban 520 on the C2W scheme. I phoned Decathlon and the only wheels they had that they could put on it for me were £550. Mental!
So, if I go for the Triban at £730, what wheels would be a solid...
I've got a confession to make. In 40+ years of cycling, I've never replaced a jockey wheel. Never had to.
No, I'm not still riding the same bike I was riding 40 years ago as replacement/upgrade bikes have come and gone during that time, which may be part of the reason, but still it makes me...
I'm generally OK with DIY and tools but I have just got back into cycling and bought a used Trek road bike.
I bought it home, removed the quick release wheels so that I could give everything a thorough degrease, wash clean, wax and lube. When I refitted the quick release wheels, when rotating...

The rear wheel bearing is beginning to feel a little less than perfectly smooth so will need replacing soon. From what I can see on the web this wheel uses ceramic cup & cone bearings and I've found pictures of old-style caged bearing races like you still find in headsets and BBs.
So what's the...
I have the O.E wheels off a 2014 Defy 2 for sale. part number SR-2 They were taken off the bike after about 12 months of use. The rear hub was a bit noisy when I removed them, I think its sealed so bear in mind(the front was fine) the logos are Okay-ish the worst is on the front...
As you may of read from my previous post I've been having some fun and games recently with my wheels.
Firstly the back wheel started making some unusual noises. After lots of help from here and from friends it turned out to be water ingress in the bearings. A clean up and re grease got me...

My car is in need of a spring clean. It wants the usual washing,vacuuming and polishing. Also the wheels are looking scruffy,so I've thought about painting them with Hammerite 'Hammered Finish' paint. The wheel trims came off months ago after one fell off so i took the rest off for obvious...
So - I've recently ordered a Specialized Diverge E5 Elite (so I don't have it in front of me at moment). Because I'd like to travel with it shortly, I was trying to find out how the wheels came off. My understanding so far is that the wheels are not quick-release, but I can't find out if that...
Hello good pedaling people.
I'm finding it hard to find a nice pair of plastic mudguard, that will fit 650b wheels with 2.0 inch tyres.
Obviouslly, they must cover the full width of the tyres, and I prefer plastic ones with 100% metal stays (no breakable plastic bits on them). Any suggestions?
I'm going to start on my Hill-Special frame
It is a 1950 frame so going to try and get it back to something like it's original spec ,
